Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day

I'm not sure about everything that was covered in Chianna's school about Martin Luther King Jr. but evidently this is what she got out of it: 
1. He'd dead.
2. It's a sad story.
3. He was good.
4. He was shot in the head by a bad man. (YIKES!)
5. There is a statue of him that she wants to see. (likely because she probably thinks it shows what happens when you get shot in the head?)

Anyone else think that "shot in the head" is a bit graphic for 1st grade? I didn't really probe any further to find out who told her that, I just figured I'd stop the conversation there before it got any worse with more questions that I can't or don't want to answer to a 6 year old.
