I don't know alot about history. Well, I take that back. What I have learned about history I learned on my own as an adult. My goal is for my children is to know that they can have a relationship with history all their life. Not just when they are old.
Wise One and I watched this on MLK last night. It wasn't the classroom version. I just found this this morning and am eager to go over some of it with him. He is 9 and of the age where he can figure things out even when they go unsaid. He can read between the lines a bit. He is one smart cookie. This age is very exciting.
Of course after that he watched an edited version of School of Rock. He is still a kid, you know. It ain't all Mozart and Einstein!
Read something on MLK today. Stop and think about what the man's mission is. It really is inspiring.
