Trillions and Trillions

When I was a kid, I had trouble understanding the concept of a big number, like 100.  Everything in childhood world was small and contained. I had a child sized plate, flatware and sippy cup. So I was content with my small world of just a few family members, a few neighbors, a few toys.

Then I grew up and had to grasp the concept of thousands, six figures, millionaires, and the speed of light. Just the idea of infinity is staggering to a young, open mind.

Please, nobody tell Congress and our President what number comes after “Trillion.”
