Written in response to the events of May 2021, this article provides a framework to have age-appropriate conversations about the Israeli-Palestinian Crisis.  The author reminds us that while we need not have all the answers to a child's questions about this crisis, we need to be willing to talk with them about "about the things they wonder and worry about."
