Optimism

A teacher and school childern discussing Washington’s quote on the Harold Square Monument this morning.

“…the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.”

I always find it worthwhile to stop and appreciate the sentiment; neat to listen in on the kids’ perspectives about our country’s problems and, more importantly, their optimism.
