Daughter is almost 15. We were talking about President's speech. She had not seen it. (She is out of school for Regents testing week.) Husband and I suggested she watch it on Youtube. We both found it quite moving. Also succinct, which is a rare virtue in such things.
Found out she did not know the significance of Seneca Falls, Selma, or Stonewall. (Selma rang a dim bell somewhere, but that was it.)
Husband fixed her up right away with a quick review of history. He also pointed out we still have some distance to go.
Poor kid, she can't know things if nobody teaches her.
