Elijah comes home from school and tells me two of his friends go to church together, “do you think Halmi (grandma) can take me to church too?”

“I think she’d love to, but your friends go to Catholic Church. Halmi goes to a Christian church.”

“What’s the difference?”

“Hmmm ok maybe not much, that’s a tough question.”

“Well is that kind of racist?”

“No I guess you could call that a little more prejudice than racist, but ah. Ok I’ll take you to whatever church you want to go to.”

Smiles super big.

This boy is always teaching me true justice and equality even beyond what I thought I practiced.
