Anyway, we gave Katrine a ride home from school the other day and she was asking why American kids know nothing of our politics. She says that they study politics in her home country--quite a bit, and when they are in high school, they understand where they stand personally and with which party they want to align themselves with! (They have 21 parties!!) She was baffled by the ignorance of our kids about their own government.
What did I learn? I have always heard: "Stay away from religion and politics" in polite conversation. Maybe if we did talk about it in civil terms, not just this black and white accusation, we would be better for it. We might even begin to understand instead of just act like we do!!!
P.S. Today is the National Day of Prayer, oops! That's religion, oh well, pray for our country anyway! :)
