Should America and what we teach our kids about her be defined by her worst?
What about us?
What are you telling your kids about America? Are you defining America and judging her by the division we see today and the worst of what we once were? Or are you defining America and judging her by the heart of what she has always been?
Our kids need to know the whole truth. Certainly, we have made mistakes; big ones. What nation hasn’t? The fact that America recognizes her mistakes and works to make them right should tell all of us something very profound about this country. It’s why folks from other countries flood our borders. Bob Woodson, a black man, said, “America is a country of redemption. None of us should be defined by the worst of what we once were.”
