On her blog, my daughter told of the way she handled the historical significance of the Obama election with my 6 year old grandson. It's at the end of this post: http://mellex.blogspot.com/2008/11/too-much-to-mention-currently-live.html

You have to start developing their consciences young. And then they get it.

I lived through the Great Depression and have seen segregation first hand. We have come a long way, but there are still miles to go.

My 27 yr old is colorblind in the way that we boomers can only dream of being. He went to a 99% black school, has mixed-race cousins and an Hispanic wife. He speaks Spanish; she doesn't. They supported Obama and were very excited when he won, but no, they didn't cry copiously (like I did...) and run outside screaming (like I did...) when the race was called. How sweet is is!

I loved the photo she included with that column. To me it said even more than Warner's column about the younger generation not quite understanding the pain, but wanting to make things right.
