Listening to a podcast today (Glynn Washington's "Snap Judgement"), there were a few words of warning before one of the stories. They were something along the lines of people with sensitive ears and children may not want to hear the next story because
And it was. It was also the perfect word to describe why young children should have turned off their radios. Other words, "disturbing," or "strong language," which usually accompany such warnings would maybe have also done the job of dissuading the very young, but they wouldn't have been as accurate. I've spent much of the rest of the day trying to figure out why, precisely, fearlessness is something from which to protect children. Because I think it is. But I'm still trying to pinpoint exactly why.
