Our Future Depends on Children – And Who We Help Them Become
As a community largely comprised of educators and parents, we have an opportunity and an obligation to have the difficult conversations with our students and our children. These young people are the future of our country and if we do not take a moment to have age-appropriate conversations about the history of race and race relations and how it impacts us all today, we will have not only failed our children but also our nation. It is OK to feel uncomfortable…what is most important is that we start talking, with our children, and with each other. Kindness and a message of inclusion and compassion delivered now can be carried forward for a lifetime of the next generation and for generations to come.
