Watching these videos, I had many thoughts. As someone who loves to study history, I was saddened, depressed, disgusted and more. Then I was all of those again by how blind some people are to the fact that history is repeating itself again in so many of the interactions we are seeing on the border, in the riots, in the way we deal with other countries. Then I thought, " Please don't let some in the current administration watch these videos. They are doing enough damage and I don't want them to get more ideas." Then, "Maybe they have and that is why we are seeing the repeats." Then back to the the anger, sadness and disgust.
How can people be so willfully blind to the suffering of others, and follow along as it happens? How can we not learn from the mistakes of our past? Racism has never made any sense to me. I can't understand why people hate others based on outward appearance. Now even more, I can't understand how people cannot learn from past mistakes. Ugh! I need a cookie.
