|I agree with Andy that you must get a child interested in history and this month being Black History Month a few of us older children learn too. That was something that George Washington Carver said that he wanted to learn something new each day. Interesting poem.|

|Escaping the bonds of slavery and the misery it caused can be soul wrenching in retrospect.|

|Getting a child interested in their history, is a brilliant gift.
Who does not want to know what has gone before?
To write it in song/poetry is the best way of all.
Ain't dat der truth.
Deep very poignant, wisdom filled write.

|Mitzi, We always do our best as parents to try and explain, to our children where and how they have been able to become what they are. Do they listen? Well, I believe they do..it just doesn't soak in, until they are old enough to absorb it. I can sit here at 45 years old and remember so vividly the numerous talks that I had with my Mother at 15, but at the time I thought she was just rattling. Oh I'd give anything to hear one of her rattles again.
Excellently penned message here Mitzi..be assured she really does hear you.

|Attempting to explain to, and make the children understand what has gone on before them is sometimes a difficult chore. When the back-breaking work has already been done FOR them, they sometimes don't quite grasp the endless sacrifice all "good" parents make for their children. And, in the case of the black sacrifice, the children of each generation have so much more than their respective parents to thank. If they can climb down off their lofty, I-know-it-all perch long enough to do that. LOL|
