Asking my second graders to make a sentence with the word boring, they give me, “This movie is boring because… because… it’s about love.”
It made me laugh. How young and naive they are now, just wait a few more years and then they will truly know.
They will know how love is the force that binds us all together. They will know how love can lift you up past the stars or drop you into the depths of despair; how it can make you ache inside yet add that extra skip in your step; how thrilling, surprising, life-changing, wonderful and non-boring it will be.
