Nikki was bursting with excitement as she delivered her news to me today.
Nikki: Mommy is transferring me to Central School! (That’s the name of our provincial elementary school)
Her older sister, who was previously enrolled there, butted in.
Salma: No, Nikki, it’s not nice there in Central School.
Nikki: But I like Central School.
Salma: Nikki, there is many ”away” there. Many will ”away” you.
Nikki in an instant, looked up at her older sister and said in a very firm, mature and serious tone…
There’s a Miriam Defensor Santiago in the making 🙂
