Gaza

Henry came home from school the other day concerned for his buddy Rasha's dad, who returned to Palestine in early December. He had some vague idea of the war going on over there. I saw my neighbor the other day and while I did not have the courage to ask her whether Mohammed was in the Gaza strip, I assumed he  was safe because she seemed okay. I probably should not assume anything and plan to say something to her when I see her next. The nytimes has a good Op. Ed piece on the Gaza conflict and Matty alerted me to this piece from the Huff. Post, which is also illuminating.

The first thought that came to my head when I read this post was how lucky Henry is to have such diverse friends at his school! And how amazing that he understands enough to be concerned for his friends...I really worry that my future children (if we stay in this area) will not understand diversity at all... My 7th and 8th grade students have no idea about what is happening, most of them have never met a person that isn't Caucasian.
