All kids love ice cream but not all of them can actually invent a new name for their favorite flavor. These creative thinkers from Louisiana did exactly that.
Traci Schmidley’s children had an ice cream party with friends treating themselves to their favorite The Great Divide flavor.
The kids are fans of it, but they noticed that dividing detail about the name of the flavor. So they came up with a sweet suggestion for the maker – to change it for a more uniting one.
The Schmidleys are a big interracial family, four kids having lighter skin and two darker. However, they are always together and there is no racial division among them.
“We are all our own color and own flavor and there is no divide between us,” they wrote. “We think we are all delicious in our own ways”. The boys expressed concern that flavor’s name can be misunderstood and represent the “division that exists in our world because of different skin colors”.
After 20 minutes of brainstorming for a new name, as Traci told WSVN, the brothers decided it should be Better Together.
The letter ends in smart words saying that Better Together name will make families and communities in the country stronger than ever.
Traci was impressed and thought the idea was brilliant. She shared the letter for others to enjoy reading the kids’ thoughts.The post has been warmly welcomed and commenters are sharing photos of their multiracial but #bettertogether families.
Blue Bell also saw the story. They praised the kids for their compassion for all people and added, “We love the idea of ‘better together’ and especially the thoughtful sentiment behind it.”
