Our Humanity…Our Children

I truly feel back in time… Growing up in the turbulence of the late 50’s, ’60s…

I learned early on in life to speak out for those in need…

I wanted to become a teacher for all children…and make a difference….I spent thirty-eight years teaching our young children…With most of those years, as a first grade teacher….

Many of my young children…coming from diverse home situations; different cultures and different ethnicities…

These beautiful children taught me how open they were to knowledge and love…

From this wonderful experience, I learned that our children do see beyond our differences…with such openness and acceptance…It is what happens throughout their lives, if the acceptance for others’ differences… will continue into adulthood…

Since this last election, President Trump’s divisiveness, rhetoric, and the racial prejudices of certain groups who support him… And moreover, just recently, the inhumane, senseless death of a black man, named George Floyd by cruel policing practices, has  brought about all this racism to the forefront;

We are still here! Still living with such racism… Which has now turned into such civil unrest!

I will hold onto hope... …Our young adults did learn!  They learned that it is important to speak out…and even protest for the racial inequality for “Black Lives“…I so pray this will be that cornerstone moment to come to terms with the wrongs made, and start reforming and rebuilding…

Along with speaking out and protesting…We must vote in November for Joe Biden, and candidates that support the …


    “Black Lives Matter Movement” for all of our children...

  1. Hello Dear Janis, I have to wonder at times if we’ve lost our humanity. There was a time………but now it seems the greater our affluence, the greater our indifference to those in need. But events towards equality are happening at a pace. Take care, love, joy and peace, Andrew.
