Oppose restrictions- Respect our educators.
 

Respect our educators.

They study early childhood psychology and know how to approach the building blocks for understanding. We want a loving, diverse, inclusive, critically thinking population that doesn’t ignorantly judge people based on their own religion.  We need to be a population that is able to understand that we all have worldviews- not one is exactly like the other.   Let’s take off our glasses aka our own sociological perspective and see the bigger picture— we all want safe, beautiful, ecologically sound local, state, national, and international communities. It all intersects. Adults- let’s put down what seemingly divides us and realize why we have government— to work towards the stability of coexistence.. Kids understand love and care for others- that is what is at the basis of all relationships.  We want our kids to lead- let them lead with a beautiful, well educated heart. My kids ask questions and I give them factual, loving and sometimes detailed answers. It works- love and care for others is what they understand. Not providing the populace with this education has proven detrimental to the mental health of many thus far - let’s give it a go.  It sounds as though some policymakers may need to evaluate and step out of their own sociological perspectives.  We should be working to a more perfect union, folks.

Respect our educators.
