Have you ever experienced a moment when all the children were enraptured by the story they had requested? The silence was deafening, not from fear of consequence but by a desire not to miss a spoken word.
“I found we had a lot in common and could have good fun if we only tried. Girls can be pretty cool best friends too. It seems as long as you’re with your best friends you can do almost anything.”
The story ended. The silence was broken. Some wiped a tear from their eyes. Others joked about having a girl for a best friend. All had listened.
