Not In Her Vocabulary

My two year old daughter and I were looking through a Zoobooks magazine on Tuesday night and came across an illustration of some game poachers armed with rifles in a jeep chasing a cheetah. Out of curiosity I pointed to the picture of the rifle and asked my daughter what it was. She stumbled over an answer and finally just looked at the picture unable to say anything. She had never seen anything like this before and this word was not in her vocabulary.

While the realities of the world have proven that man has a need for weapons, it is unfortunate that we cannot return to a time when we look at a picture of a gun and do not know what it is or what it is for.

Very good point and wouldn’t life be easier if they would stay innocent forever, unfortunately that is not possible so there for one of our duties is to introduce them to some of those things in order for them to keep prospective of the real world.
