WATCH: French father and son have touching conversation about Paris attacks

How do you explain the Paris attacks to a toddler?

Here’s how:


“The flowers and the candles are here to protect us.”

“Do you feel better now?”

“Yes, I feel better.”

This wins. Screw bad guys with guns.

    Another news story of a nice kid :

    A 7-year-old boy recently donated all the money in his piggy bank to a
    Texas mosque that was vandalized in what police are saying is a hate crime, an official from the house of worship said.

    NOw that was an adult giving his son tools and images to live by in a quiet, intelligent way…no baby talk, no hyperbole. Just a dad to his son…very nice.
