“Why?” I have heard this word a lot in the last couple of months. Our three year old is in the middle of the “why” phase, and is asking why to everything. Give him an answer to his why, and he immediately follows it up with another why related to the answer you just gave. Currently, that combination of those three letters is one of my least favorite words in the entire English language. However, hearing it constantly over the last couple of months has made me think…when did we lose that curiosity? When did we start believing what we see on social media or online without question? When did it become okay to take the opinion of someone who may not have any actual experience, or scientific results, as fact?
