Fugazi, "Merchandise"

"I have a DS at home. Who here has a DS?" Hands around the table shot up.

"Who here has Call of Duty: Black Ops?" another asked. A few hands shot back up.

"Who has an iPhone? Who has an iPhone 5?" the first one asked. More hands went up.

I approached the table where my third graders were chatting. "Who doesn't define yourself by what you own?" I asked. I raised my hand. The kids looked up at me in disgust.

They think I'm crazy, but maybe one day they'll listen to Fugazi.
