Overheard at my house: Nazi is a 4 letter word…

Transcribed for your entertainment and edification:

Chet (8yrs) and Henry (6yrs) discuss the following:

Chet: I want to watch the first Indiana Jones. Who wants to watch with me?

Henry: NO! That has bad stuff in it!

Chet: No, it’s fine, we’ve seen it already

Henry: We’re not allowed to watch it

Chet: Why not?

Henry: It has scary stuff…and bad words.

Chet: like what?

Henry: Like Nazis. They’re like bad words, we shouldn’t watch that.

Among all the “scary” things or the normally considered “bad words” my kids saw in Indiana Jones the one that made the impression was this. I’m not kidding when I say that this moves me. I’m proud of that bit of discernment. A strangely profound gift today.
