“Mum, look at those birds over there!”
“Yeah Scott, I can see them.”
“Mum, where are they from?”
“I can’t say precisely where they are from. I guess they should be from somewhere far away.”
“Mum, what’s their name?”
“They are Crows.”
“I hate them. They are ugly. They don’t look like the Robin birds. The Robin birds are cute. Mum, why did God create such ugly birds?”
“There has to be a variety in life.”
“Mum, what is variety?”
“It means difference. It makes the world colourful. It makes the world a fun place.”
“Oh! Ok.”

    Oh, Scott, how can you think that Crows are ugly? And they are so intelligent too! Good job with telling the story in conversation format again, Thompson.

    Hi Thompson, isn’t it different how we all see things different, but isn’t it different when we try to see why some people see things different? More tolerance, do you think?

    Hello, Thompson. Great job. I love how the mother explains to Scott the diversity and uniqueness of each creature on earth. Very satisfying to the part of Scott.

    Another great dialogue. This time it is the mother who is very clever and teaches her little son in a wonderful way about differences. Great work, Thompson.

    I bet Scott still likes the robin best. Cute carries a lot of weight  ?

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
