as kids say it - sep 20

I was reviewing my tutee with her Civics quiz tomorrow about the national symbols. As I was casually reviewing her knowledge on the symbols, I encourage her to ask questions. I was sharing to her that Dr. Jose Rizal fought the Spaniards with his pen, he wrote 2 books that then started the revolution.

Tutee: What does the 8 rays of the sun mean teacher?
Teacher: The rays represent the 8 cities that fought the Spaniards during the war. Meaning, we were like prisoners for a while.
Tutee: Huh?? I never remembered being in prison when I was young.

Right one there girl.
