Not Just a Day Off (19 of 365)
January 19, 2009
This is what we did during breakfast this morning. Watched Martin Luther King Jr’s I Have A Dream speech and talked about civil rights.
My children watch the speech and think that it was something in the very distant past. After all there wasn’t even color tv back then! They can not even grasp why people would care about the color of the skin of someone else.
“But, why?” they keep asking.
I have no answer.
“People don’t still think that, do they?” they ask.
Tommorrow we will watch Barack Obama become the 44th president of the United States.
And I am thankful that this is their normal.
