My Dress Is Pink

November 8, 2007
By Lauren McCarthy, Raleigh, NC

As her mother watched from the front door,
The little girl went to meet her new neighbor.
The girl and her new friend were both about three;
They both stared at each other curiously.
She finally found the courage to speak,
But the other girl didn’t make a peep.
“I’m black and you’re white, but my dad said it was okay
If I came over here to play.”
The poor toddler didn’t know what to think,
She simply answered, “My dress is pink.”
