Just Another Reminder to Vote

Los Angeles is a very tolerant city. One of the reasons I like living here is the diversity. For me, that includes race, religion and sexual orientation. Since I live in a blue state with representatives (all women!!) that mostly vote how I want them to, I forget about the other parts of our country

Hearing this clip from Oklahoma representative Sally Kern made me shudder.

It makes me so sad to see that the children in my class can be so open, curious, and accepting and I need to know that there are adults in the world who can't make it to their level of understanding. If, by teaching the children in my classes to be respectful of others who are different than they are and look for the similarities within the differences, I am part of the indoctrinating personnel she is talking about, I happily accept the label. Of course, I also would like to remind her that she can be elected and can say these awful things because people like me continue to accept and fight for her right to free speech and her right to run for office.
