With our grandson staying here overnight, I naturally avoided the news on TV. However, he asked to watch a cartoon this morning, and while scrolling numerous channels to try to find what he wanted, I momentarily clicked on the channel BBC NEWS 24.
Of course, it was about the situation in Ukraine, and a live report from Kiev.
I flicked off more or less immediately, but he had already noticed it.
Turning to me, he said this.
“The world is going to be broken. I don’t want to live here when the world is broken, so I am going to live in Space with mummy and daddy. I like the idea of living in space, as I can float around”.
He is 7 years old.
