A reminder

A few years ago, I recorded a version of the beautiful song from South Pacific by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein II, “You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught.” I’ve always loved the sentiment of “You have to be taught to hate and fear,” but as I’ve grown, I realize that LOVE must be equally active.


So I wrote an additional verse, calling on us all to teach ourselves and our children to talk about hard issues, learn about each other and not be afraid of the unfamiliar, and work for justice for all people.
