Poignant thoughts shared by Melting Pot Mom, Nona (and her son)....
what would you say?
"So it's that time of year again. Martin Luther King Day. This is the time where for at least two days, the kids come home with little activities and mini readings on the civil rights movement, Rosa Parks, segregation and so on....you know all in a day or two. But whatever... it is what it is.
THIS year, my quiet 8 year old comes home and asks me 1 simple question..."Mom, if I lived in the olden days...what water fountain would I have to drink out of...cuz I'm black,white, AND Mexican". So first after I picked up my jaw off the floor and regained focus from the tears of pride swealing in my eyes....I told him....lets talk about that this weekend. Mommy needs time to think about this very important and strong question. So my fellow melting pot moms, and parents of the universe....what would you say....."
