On conflict.

Mummy. Why is there war?

This is a very big question… It has to do with people having different ideas about what’s important and not knowing how else to deal with them.

Oh – but when I have problems I talk about them. [Beat]

Sometimes I cry instead.

How very self-examined of you. Usually talking is more productive than crying, but those are both safe ways of dealing with conflict.

And then I get hugs:  Maybe countries could try that. Then the soldiers would not die.
