You may read a version of this on my daughter's blog if you read it ...but she called and told me this story and I have to tell you all.
Kyra, my fabulous oldest granddaughter, goes to a school at which she is a minority. By minority, I mean like the only white kid in her grade. She doesn't even notice.
Being as February is Black History Month, her class is doing many things, including a big party where everyone is bringing their favorite 'soul food.'
Kyra's teacher talked to her and since she didn't know what soul food was, she was given the option of bringing some food from Canada.
Her best friend, Mayia (pictured above talking to each other using Nintendo DS while they are side by side...) is bringing macaroni and cheese. See how small the differences are? We have macaroni and cheese in Canada! ;-)
This is the girl who, arriving home from school after learning about Rosa Parks said, with passion, "If Rosa Parks didn't do what she did, we would still be sitting at the back of the bus!" I think this is the best education Kyra could have.
There may be hope for the world yet.
