What are my hopes for you?

This is a strange time to be a nine-year-old boy, and the pandemic is just part of it. Men around the world that have spent years doing terrible things to women are finally getting punished for it. Everyone is talking about what makes a good man — especially mothers with sons. What makes a man grow up to be kind and helpful, like you? You don’t even think about it, of course, but I do. A lot.
