Peace Day

31 Jan


Last Friday they celebrated Peace Day at my daughter´s Kindergarten. All the children had to come to school wearing a white shirt.

One little boy showed up that day in a colourfully striped T-shirt. Because his father had forgotten about the white shirt assignment, or simply couldn´t be bothered, I don´t know.

I imagine the teacher seeing that boy walking into the classroom in his multicoloured shirt, amid a sea of white. I imagine her raising one eyebrow and sighing. I imagine her thinking what she´d like to tell the dad, like, for real.

But – it was Peace Day. So, you know, what can you do?

    Een regenboogvlag – is dat geen vredesvlag?

      Dat dacht ik eigenlijk ook 🙂
      Maar ik heb het T-shirt in kwestie gezien en het was toch niet echt een regenboogvlag…
