Saving Kids from Optimism

If there's a hell I'm probably going there for posting this, but I can't help but think it's pretty funny.

Our first week here I decided to take Aias to all the various drop-in centres for families in the neighborhood to get an idea of which he would like the best.  At one of our favorites (which I won't name because this is sort of embarrassing) Aias fit right in and was happily playing with the other kids so I decided to take a look around at the art and such on the walls. In my perusing, I came across this:

I was trying to make sense of this; I understand helping kids who have diabetes, but optimism?  Is optimism bad? Did they want to give kids with diabetes some optimism? It didn't make sense.  A bunch of signs all over this giant wall said this exact thing over and over...

Finally at the end of the wall I saw this:


Look more closely:


At least they fixed their mistake, right?

At first I was a little horrified and I made a mental note that Aias would never go to preschool at that place, but then I learned there are lots of volunteers who are 12 and 13, so I'm gonna let this one thing slide.
