How Come?

Remember how curious you were when you were little?

You wanted to know how things worked, so you took them apart.

You built Lego monsters.

You concocted new compounds with your chemistry set.

You created bright, crazy pictures with Crayolas.

You challenged them with question after question…

and puzzled in the hesitancy of their answer. 

Then your questions got harder.

Until one day – exasperated and impatient – they said.

“Because I said so.”

Dissatisfied, you looked for answers somewhere else.

Now you’re on the job.

You have questions.

If they answer.

“Because I said so.”

It’s time to look for answers someplace else.
