Religion, again

Today's Top Serious Fourth Grade Question: If you don't have a religion, then do you just not believe in anything?

My response: I believe in joy. I believe in my own mind and the things I can do. I believe in my relationship with you, and your relationship with me. So I think I believe in a lot of things.

They responded with smiles and we moved on.

(Also, I told them that homosexuals were targeted in the Holocaust along with Jews. "What are homosexuals?" one kid asked. Half the class called out, "GAY!!!")
