When You Grow Up

The teacher would go around the room calling on us one by one. We were only 7 or 8 years old at the time. The answers were always general, without explanation.

“A fireman.”

“Cop.”

“President.”

“Astronaut.”

Back then we knew who changed the course of history. None of us said Spider-Man, Batman, or Superman. It was time when we wanted to be heroes.

Do you remember your answer?
