We Will Be Free

February is Black History Month. When history books include history from all different perspectives, there will no longer be a need for a separate month for black history. Other perspectives that are also important and relevant to the understanding of especially American history would be that of the Native Americans and also many of the nationalities who, upon arrival in this land of freedom, met with one obstacle after another.

We will be free when we embrace all of our heritage; when we acknowledge the mistakes made by people of all races, colors, creed, and religions; when we try to understand that which caused those mistakes. Only then can we grow as a nation and not as a population artificially divided by labels.
