our new president


I keep remembering being a kid and watching the TV news where National Guard troops were using fire hoses on Black children who were out protesting for civil rights, and feeling angry and heartsick that this was the "real" America. It was so unlike what we read about in school. How could we believe what they were teaching us?

This is better.
