Last Friday, Benjamin walked into the office just as Andrea and I were watching video of the tsunami in Japan.
“What are you watching,” he asked, his eyes glued to the screen…It was too late to turn it of.
“Well, there was an earthquake in a country called Japan that made a big wave that came on land,” we told him.
“Did anyone get hurt?”
“Yes, people got hurt.”
In a very low voice, he responded, “That is really sad.”
I’m not sure why his response surprised Andrea and I so much. I think it was the way he asked the questions and responded…It was very mature and came right from the heart. He is such a sweet boy. It could just that the tone o his voice captured exactly what Andrea and I were thinking.
And we won’t be watching videos like that when they are still awake, anymore.
