Sadly – not only will the cheeto in the White House never see this…but even if he does – it would be largely ignored.
Dear Mr. President,
I have so many thoughts right now, but I’ll try to keep this simple for you.
My school has students from 38 nations. It is hard enough for them to adjust to life in a new country as an adolescent without someone calling their homeland a “shithole country.” As a geography teacher, I’ve spent the better part of two decades trying to get students to see that ALL countries have problems, and ALL countries have cultures to be proud of. I’ve had hundred of students watch the TED Talk by Chimamanda Adichie, “The Danger of a Single Story.” You should consider watching it, it would serve you well.
What 12-13 year olds understand, but you clearly don’t, is that we cannot, and should not judge an entire group of people by that actions of some. You have done this repeatedly with respect to Muslims, Mexicans, and anti-Nazi protesters…
