Wow! What a great column. Mr. Tisino summed up my feelings and fears exactly. I am sad that he had that experience at Evergreen Elementary School, but I get it.
I love that his article was printed at the same time as Grace Nesbit’s, my daughter (“Learning Preju-dice,” KP News, Jan. 2022.) I hope it gives him strength from the knowledge that there are those who do teach their children about love, acceptance and tolerance regardless of race and cultural back-ground. I hope that he indeed does stay on the Key Peninsula.
This was a gutsy call-out piece to write. If possible, will you share with him that he is not alone in his fight to educate people in our area? He is making a difference. The season that our community, our society, our nation is living through right now is definitely concerning. I am glad he shared his story. It has value and must be heard. Thank you for providing the platform.
