Again, thanks for all that you do. I wish more black adults would join you,
or at least try to educate the current generation about the values that have
made this country great. Yes, there have been many wrongs done to various groups
and individuals throughout history, but we need to focus on the many rights,
and the convictions that produced those rilghts.
I was recently at Chattanooga State Community College and noted some of the
placards posted all over the campus in celebration of Black History month. There
was a placard with Martin Luther King apparantly speaking with a uniformed officer.
The caption was "Gangsta". What does that teach young people? It seemed
to me to teach division and hate. Another placard pictured the Black Panthers.
What you are doing is much needed, H.K.
I will send a special donation for your Florida trip to you today.
