  2. What a sad state of affairs.
    Worst yet, I have been told, public schools in America are beginning to teach it never happened.
    Such a slap in the face to those who suffered personally or knew someone.
    Thank you for being willing to remind people this did happen.

  3. Michelle, it's nothing new. I saw a documentary where young people in Germany don't know about Hitler's reign or the Holocaust because it isn't taught in schools. I met a young Vietnamese nail tech recently who'd never heard about Americans fighting in her country. Now, here's the worst one: I heard that the some schools are going to only teach American history beginning with the years AFTER the Civil War. There's going to be a whole lot of history lost on that one. This is one reason the Jews were diligent about recording the Torah as well as in passing down oral history.
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting, and NEVER forget.
