By Hope Livesay

"Life is a journey a real journey once you are born it starts and when you are a baby lots of things are happening I mean you learn things and maybe the first things you say are "dada" "mama" and your brothers and sisters names but they do say it in a wierd way and when you are a todler you could go in kindergarten and learn a lot of things that you did not know before and from kindergarten you go up and up and up I mean first grade second grade third grade fourth grade that kind of stuff so as you can see it really is a journey and when you get older you maybe will get a boyfriend and then get serious and get married wait a few years have children be grandparents and then be really old and then before you know it your dead and you are up in heaven how beautiful"

We're troubled by how fast the jump is between having children and being grandparents ... that part of the journey seemed too short. Could it be some sort of foreshadowing?!?!

Before you know it you are dead.
