The rest we learned in kindergarten … “Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
And it is still true, no matter how old you are – when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.” (aka solidarity)!
