Conversation With My mini-Guru:

Dakari: “Daddy, who gave you your name Pete Saunders?
Me: “Well, my mommy gave me the name Pete. As for Saunders, most likely my father’s father’s father’s father’s father got it from his slave master, who then gave it to his children.

Dakari: “Oh, you mean my great-great-great-great-great-grandfather was a slave?
Me: “I have no proof, but most likely.”
[We talked about slavery for a few minutes]
Dakari: “Daddy, that’s very bad and disobedient to my second Golden Rule.”
Me: “Your Second Golden Rule?”
Dakari: “Thou shalt not kidnap people from their homes nor take away people’s freedom.”
Me: “I like your second Golden Rule. I like it very much.
