The Simple Life

Each day after school I would get off the school bus, run inside, drop my books, kiss my mother, and run to the living room to watch Little House.


It was one of my favorite shows, and even today I still watch it when the world starts to feel too cold and hateful. Little House takes me to a comforting place, one where neighbors were neighborly, people were essentially good and kind, and children were allowed to be children without worrying about sex and violence.

I know that in actuality, life wasn't exactly like the show portrays it- it's definitely been white-washed. But even so, it's a wonderful portrayal to pattern your life after. The emphasis was always on loving one another, helping one another, and kindness, even toward your "enemies". What a beautiful concept.
