One day this week, driving somewhere, Sarah said,
"Mom, when the astronauts landed on the moon and put the American flag down, was that because we were there first, and so it's ours?"
Me: "Not exactly. It's more like leaving a message that you were there. We may have been there first, but someone who comes after you can leave their own flag to say 'I was here too.'"
Sarah: "But we were still first."
