In America, some still have difficulty facing up to the truth about our history. We brag to other countries about our glorious past, but when it comes to our dirty little American secrets, we tell those whose ancestors have suffered to “Get over it.” I do believe that America is still the best country in the world, but we must deal with our past, all of it, and teach it in school in total (confess, repent, teach, then and only then move forward). Unfortunately, our country refuse to do so, thus continuing a never ending circle of ignorance.
