So I was telling him the date MLK was shot & killed so he could write it down.
Braidon: "I'm not sure my teacher wants me to write something as violent as he was "shot & killed."
Me: "Well that's what happened and it *was* violent so how would you like to word it?"
Braidon: "How about 'he was hit with a metal piece that came bursting out of someone's gun? Probably on accident' because that sounds less violent."
Me: *staring at him with big, round eyes* "Honey, you're turning this in to your teacher whom I'm sure knows how MLK was killed."
Braidon: "Isn't there enough violence in the world without me having to write about it?"
Me: "touché son, touché."
