Education isn’t memorizing that Hitler killed 6 million Jews. Education is understanding how millions of ordinary Germans were convinced that it was required. Real education is learning how to spot the signs of history repeating itself. We must never forget what hate does to us.
My sister Tracy was just taken into the ER in SC. She's COVID positive, has a pulse ox atm of 80 while being on oxygen.
I know I don't have many followers, but if just a few of you could maybe throw a prayer or two her way, I'd really appreciate it. 🙏🙏
The question is not how good Biden’s first year has been—and it has been very good.
The question is how much better it would have been had the GOP not spent every last breath—and often it was the very last breath—trying to ruin it.
For decades, Florida's constitution said, "The schools for white children and the schools for negro children shall be conducted separately." That's racism embedded in the legal system. But that would be off limits for teachers.
If the GOP interfered this much in 2020 they will not stop in 2024. We need safeguards for our election systems that are Party proof. Manipulating the results is more dangerous than putting obstacles in the way of votes.
Here's an unsettling thought:
If we don't revise the ECA, successfully overturning the 2024 election might only require a single corrupt GOP governor and a GOP-controlled House.
An important new paper spells out this nightmare scenario.
This photo of my family — taken 27 years ago — was featured in a book called “Love Makes a Family: Portraits of LGBT Parents and Their Families.” It doesn’t include our youngest girls (identical twins) who weren’t born yet. The baby in this photo is getting married in October! ❤️
