I know we are all horrified by the massacre of Muslim worshipers in New Zealand.
One of this month's topics is the study of Islam. What impressions will you place on your children's hearts? Will they fear people of other faiths or will they seek to understand them? Remember the danger of the single story.
Like the song says in South Pacific:
You've got to be taught to hate and fear You've got to be taught from year to year It's got to be drummed in your dear little ear You've got to be carefully taught
[Verse 2] You've got to be taught to be afraid Of people whose eyes are oddly made And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade You've got to be carefully taught
[Verse 3] You've got to be taught before it's too late Before you are six or seven or eight To hate all the people your relatives hate You've got to be carefully taught
Tomorrow's world will be shaped by what you teach your children today.
