Five Pence

My daughter held out both fists in front of her and asked, “Which hand?”
I chose the right.
She opened it to reveal a small silver coin.
“What is it?” I asked.
“It says…five pence.”
“What can you get for five pence?”
“I don’t know. What can you get?”
“Not much, on its own. But if you add it to enough other coins, you can buy almost anything you like. It’s a bit like with people. One person on their own can’t do much to change the world; but when enough people join together, they can.”
