Not too Young
Someone once suggested to me that when approaching a subject I knew very little about, I might start with a text meant for a high school student. Neil deGrasse Tyson was recently asked the big question "What is the meaning of life?" The question came from a six year old.
He answered this way. "I think people ask that question on the assumption that meaning is something you can look for and "Oh, I found it!" " . . . maybe meaning in life is something you create, that you manufacture for yourself and others." "Have I learned something today that I didn't know yesterday?"
I hope that answer helped the first grader. It was certainly good enough for me.
