Talk about a life lesson.
Ch-ch-check out this amazing letter from a 9-year-old named Nick Packard who thinks the board game LIFE is totally unfair.
Here's what he said:
"Dear Milton Bradley,
I think your new version of Life® game is unfair. On the board there is not one black person and you get married to someone of the opposite sex and you can't be gay or lesbian. Also the girls are pink which is stereotypical for the "weaker sex" and the boy pegs are blue which is stereotypical for strength there are so many strong girls and weak boys. Also your game teaches little kids that if you have tons of money you automatically happy that is a lie. And you must buy a house which many people can't afford, and you have to have a huge paying job in other words your game is not really life — written by Nick Packard age 9."
We could NOT have said it better ourselves, and we're MUCH older!
Go, Nick Packard!
