maybe they know best

What does love mean?
A group of researchers in America asked this question to a group of 4-8 year olds and the answers were deeper than they expected.
When my grandmother got arthritis, she could not bend over to paint her nails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hand got arthritis. That’s love. Rebecca aged 8

When someone loves you. The way they say your name is different. You just know your name is safe in their mouth. Billy age 8

Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen. Age 7

Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well. Tom age 6
