Because We are Ashamed Should We Deny It
Wouldn’t it be better to acknowledge our ancestors and our history? I’ve learned that acknowledging what we have learned about our ancestors is just that acknowledging. We can be ashamed and not agree with what our ancestors may have done. But denying it that’s another story. I’m happy to share the following “Throw Back Thursday” blog post. I was taken back by the comment I had received and didn’t think twice about my responses.
When visiting kids in the class rooms especially American History, World History even current events. You see and hear things that aren’t always pleasant but that is OUR history. That is the way I explained it to my kids and even adults. We learn from our mistakes, our ancestor’s mistakes, the mistakes made in OUR history. We learn from them and try hard not to repeat them.
The linked blog post above is one of my favorite. That might seem strange to some but I was happy to share some of my family history. If you would like to read more on the follow up you are welcome to visit “Descendant Story Continues“. We all have a story to share.
