|Monticello . . .. estate of Thomas Jefferson|
Fast forward to today, in the age of enlightenment of 2011, where on a tour bus, I still heard racial slurs. Over the last few days I have heard comments such as the Civil War is not over, the juries are all black, etc., etc. This seems to be ingrained and I am appalled to hear first hand that this tension is still nearly a rolling boil. I personally do not believe in the bondage of another human being, so have a very difficult time with these situations. I have to constantly remind myself that I am a guest in this Country and it behooves me to act in a respectful manner.

Still pondering and reflecting on all we have seen and experienced.
