This Week's Thought
I can't imagine being one of those parents in that mob surrounding William Frantz Elementary as Ruby Bridges walked in. But, seeing their faces in photos, it is clear that they are 100% convinced of their cause.
There are two things here I was thinking about.
First, "Strong beliefs, weakly held" a quote from Marc Andreessen. All those parent's had strong beliefs, strongly held. It's hard to let go of an idea when you are holding on to it SOOOOO TIGHTLY that you will scream profanity at a 6 year old who is challenging the idea.
Second, nothing that requires me to scream at a 6 year old is worth believing in. Nothing. How you treat kids in any issue is a good marker of which side of history you are on.
"Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in this world, but has not solved one yet" Maya Angelou.
