My Little Girl’s Question about the Graveyard

I had an interesting moment with my little girl. We drove past a cemetery. She said, “Daddy, there are some big statues out there. Are those for some of the people who died?”

“Yes,” I replied.

“I think everybody deserves one of those statues,” she said. “Are they at least for the really good people?”

“No, sweetie. Some of them may have been really good, but mostly it means they were people with money,” I said.

I could tell she was disappointed. Wish I had a better answer, baby.
