6/29 Lessons of the Holocaust 6:30 p.m.

The Need for Holocaust Education and Lessons to be Learned

I have found this topic to be more relevant now than ever before.  The violence, intolerance, bigotry, and hatred must come to an end or our very way of life will be threatened.  Bullying and indifference start at an early age, and we have a responsibility to help create a safer more caring environment.  We need to be up standers and not bystanders in the face of evil.  My goal is to keep the lessons of the holocaust alive.  After this event we said “NEVER AGAIN, ” yet there are numerous places today where genocide is happening.  We as individuals must do our part to help humanity survive the inhumanity that some have toward others.  We cannot stand by while people are being tortured and killed for their differences, whatever they may be.  I hope this presentation will make us all better students, teachers, friends, and community members.  Please allow me the opportunity to try and make this difference.
