I could drown in the stream of papers flowing into this house from elementary school. Yesterday a teal sheet arrived announcing an art contest -- literary, visual, dramatic art addressing the prompt "Diversity means..." So this morning, Silas and I sat down and talked about what diversity means -- it's the opposite of same, diverse fruits and vegetables at the farmers' market, diverse people at the park, how if a group of people all looked exactly the same and said the exact same thing etc. Then he left to draw. At one point I heard him say, I'm coloring my ninja. Ninja?! What exactly is happening in your picture? This was it: someone tall, someone low, a ninja, a bee keeper with bees on him, a (very small) robber, a baby, and multiple X's that show that other people are NOT those things. Diversity.
