Russell Simmons: So a Rabbi and a Hip-Hop Mogul Go to Israel…

This piece caught my eye as something we need to remember to “teach” to American children  \as well as to Americanadults not only about tolerance but also about acceptance.  A quote from the linked-to blog:

Its our responsibility to teach our children mutual tolerance and respect. As we are taught from Proverbs 22:6, we should “train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. “We should also remember the words of Mahatma Gandhi: “If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.” How else will our children know what to do if we dont lead them down this path?

The blog post itself is short and to the point. Read on…
