We can do better
We watched the CNN/Sesame Street town hall about racism as a family and had a good long talk about racial equality.
Gigi has been fortunate to have always attended very diverse schools, from her very first daycare playgroup at 6 months. But bringing attention to the injustice in the country was and is important. So was reminding her to look out for others and to use her voice.
The end of the special had Van Jones, Elmo and the Sesame Street crew each saying, “I can do better” and then “We can do better” and it really resonated.
We all can.
