One day, my friend, Kim, was teaching her toddler about the American flag. She pointed to the stars on the flag, and told the little girl that each star was for one of the 50 states in our nation—like Arizona, Texas,California, Ohio, Wisconsin, and so on, until she listed all of the states.
When Kim finished, her little girl looked up and with wide-eyed innocence said, “Which star is for Baby Jesus?”
