Children have a unique way of giving adults new perspective.
They see the world differently than we do, and it gives them neat little insights into our everyday activities. Recently, kids at a Ronald McDonald House were asked about something that affects our everyday life: Government. The children were given an assignment to explain how they would run Canada if elected prime minister, and just as you probably expected, answers ranged from the “darndest things” to some straight-up wisdom.
“I would give everyone their birthday off with pay,” one child said.
“I’d make a machine that can make pets talk.”
“For healthcare, I would provide free medicine because it’s not your fault you got sick and need medicine.”
That last one seems to be the most, er, realistic. These aren’t exactly regular kids though. They’re all siblings of seriously-ill patients, and they’ve all picked up a thing or two about the inner workings of Canada’s healthcare system in their regular visits to the hospital. If anyone has some constructive criticism ready, it’s likely them.
