“Sabrina! Sabrina come over here sweetie!”
Sabrina, a young girl who couldn’t have been more than 4 years old, ignored her mother’s calling. She was much more interested in the dandelion she’d found by the sidewalk than the protest she’d been brought to.

Curious as to what prompts someone to bring her young child to an event like this, I walked up and asked her just that.
