As a Girl Scout Troop Leader, I was surprised when I my troop didn’t know the meaning of the 4th of July. So we did a study unit on what it was all about.
Then years later when my son was in college, taking a first year American history class, the teacher was mentioning Independence Day and one girl raised her hand and said, “Cool that it happened on a holiday.”
This was foooor real. Really. Truly. Real.
I would have felt sorry for her had I been there, except that it’s really sad. Really. Seriously. What are we teaching our kids anyway?
Okay, so it’s also really, really funny. Too.
Hey, I don’t need to make up stories. It’s all just…out there.
Back to writing! What? You think I’m off to celebrate??
I am, when I write. 🙂
