Kindergarten: Playground Madness
Again, I had little recall of my childhood, though one memory stood out in Kindergarten. I held my hand out in front as Ibol placed her hand on mine. I swung my hand to the right, and viewed the record.
In Ibol’s record, it was my first day at kindergarten. All the kids were in recess. I walked towards the swings to try the fun. In horror, I saw one kid walk by the swings get knocked down, then another. I retreated to the corner of the building with a ball to bounce.
The teacher came over and asked if I wanted to play with the other kids.
I shook my head and Ibol remnant said, “No, I do not want to.”
Ibol explained to me that she had lost another young child under her watch. She was not going to lose this human child, me.
