My daughter was counting down the days until April 1st. On that day, she had a little role in a play called "Open?". The play was written, directed and performed by a group of Conrad Grebel students. The focus was on telling stories to highlight refugee issues in Canada. They sold out the venue and all of the money raised went to Mennonite Coalition for Refugee Support.

I overheard this daughter telling her 4 year old friend the other day, "It's called 'Open' and it has a question mark at the end because they're wondering 'should we be open to refugees?' Do you know what refugees are? They are people who have to leave their countries for some reasons like earthquakes and stuff. I think Canada should be open to people who need help. So it should be a period, instead of a question mark. What do you think?"

Amazing to overhear 4 year old conversations.
