I think there is a lot of room for education of our young about the reality of our past. All of it is not pretty, and if we are truly interested in
making America great, the truth of where we where is a good place to start, to make sure we are headed in the right direction.
It is believed that most people learn easier by seeing and touching. Picking cotton was a difficult, tedious, repetitive, and painful task. I think
they should go a step further and allow those that want to learn about it, let them actually go out in a cotton field a pick a bit of cotton.
I noticed that the young people in my family have a hard time understanding how bad it was for some of our ancestors. Because of the sacrifices and
the lives of many of our ancestors, they are living a life that someone really died for.
Allowing the media to make a mockery of our true history, allowing the media to foster the belief that learning, the truth, should be rejected and
sugar coated, is a a lost for our children, not a win.
