4th Grader Ends Gay Marriage Debate With One Essay


Does anyone remember what they wrote about in fourth grade? I can personally recall writing about the use of molasses on the Oregon Trail, but that’s about it. No matter what you wrote about, I’m guessing you didn’t try to tackle one of the leading political and social issues of our time. That’s what one fourth grader decided to do in a persuasive essay. 

The essay was posted on the popular website Reddit by the student's teacher. The topic the child chose was gay marriage. Here is the picture the teacher posted:

Sure, it is not the finest example of prose but it certainly makes more sense that most of the arguments I see against gay marriage. A brief and poignant lesson to treat others as you would want to be treated.
