Though Toledo might seem immune, this clip from The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon offers this dilemma - how to explain hate to our children, following recent events in Charlottesburg, NC.
Each year around the time school begins again, I re-post this story written by an author and blogger I admire. At first read, it’s about how allergies can emerge and fade away at nearly any stage of life. Digging a bit deeper, it’s about bullying - about targeting those who fall outside some narrow definition of mainstream mores and behaviors. Those who are different.
As this school year gets underway, I pray you nurture understanding instead of hate and fear.
Be the change you wish to see in the world. ~Mahatma Gandhi
