Molly’s Pilgrim

I searched for the words to explain “Pilgrim” to Mama. “Pilgrims came to this country from the other side,” I said.
“Like us,” Mama said.
That was true. “They came for religious freedom,” I added. “They came so they could worship God as they pleased.”
Mama’s eyes lit up. She seemed to understand.

And so Molly also comes to understand a concept that transcends history homework.
