with eyes open wide
One of the main reasons why I will do everything I can to keep my children out of a school system is because the majority of their time in school is filled with useless and biased information.
Here’s a perfect example. I don’t remember ONCE learning about Australia’s history. Many of you might say, “And why would you care? You are an American.”
And that shows me that you NEITHER learned about Australia’s history because if you had, you would realize why it’s so important for everyone to learn.
The woman in the center of this photo is Doris Pilkington Garimara. Doris is aboriginal. She had a rough childhood, separated from her mother when they were forced into mandatory government “re-education” camps. Actually her mother fled and left Doris in the camp and they were reunited about 20 years later.
Doris was the author of a popular book-turned-movie called “Follow The Rabbit-Proof Fence.” She used her celebrity to highlight aboriginal issues.
Unfortunately Doris passed away at the age of 76 recently, leaving behind 80 grandchildren! Her legacy will forever live on.
