“One of my 4th grade students chose gay marriage as his topic for a persuasive essay,” the student’s teacher wrote on Reddit. “This is the result. More sense than some adults.”

The teacher added, “I’m not sharing this because of how perfect the sentences are but because of how clear his thought process is on this specific issue.”
