I went to a party this weekend held in an airplane museum in the desert. The theme was “retro” which meant come in a costume that represented any decade in the 1900’s.

Many years ago, I remember my daughter coming home from kindergarten. In her backpack, there was a yellow sheet that gave the instructions for a fire drill. The note asked parents to talk to their children and make sure they knew the appropriate course of action. I turned toward my daughter as we sat down to lunch and asked what she would do if a fire broke out in her classroom. Without hesitation, she remarked, “I would stop and wait for the voice in my head to tell me what to do.”
