Have you taken the time to share the dream with your children?
Don’t let today pass by as just another day. It can be so much more.
It broke my heart to have to explain the term, “negro” to my children.
To explain to them specifically what it was that Martin Luther King was dreaming about.
That equality could ever have to be “a dream.”
It reminded me how much worse the mothers before me had to have felt.
The mothers who had to tell their children not to drink out of that water fountain.
Or that they had to sit on the back of the bus, even though there were plenty of seats in the front.
It reminded me how important the story of Martin Luther King is to our curriculum. I hope it is important in yours too.
