When I was about three years old, I asked my parents a question but they didn’t know the answer. I looked at them, befuddled, and asked,” But you must know the answer! You’re my parents! How will I learn if you can’t teach me?!” My parents told me that they didn’t know everything, and I was distraught! I wept lakes of tears, and now that I look back at this moment, it is magical because if it had not happen, I would not be able to accept all the lessons I learn, including the lesson that parents don’t know everything!
