I rarely worry about the children.
But, with the approval of DeVos as Secretary of Education I have to say — I’m worried.
I had hope that the next generation would be voters who would change the havoc that is being created by the asshats now in power.
I had hope that they would not, could not, be so callous, so closed minded, or so financially focused, that fucking over others, would not be their main goal.
But, I realize now, they may lack the education that will be needed. They may not even get the chance to learn the necessary skills to make these changes.
The dumbing down in the American education system is going strong and my hope fades.
I had a poor education when a good education was at least on the table.
Now, I fear they are clearing that table of opportunity.
As I said, I rarely worry about children. But thanks to the shit storm in the states, I can honestly say, I’m not only worried, I’m heartbroken.
My action for the day –
I’m going to continue my education, by reading something I was supposed to read, when I was in school, but did not.
AND I’m writing our PM again today. It begins with…
Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,
Put your shirt back on, there is work to be done.
