The boys and I are on a history road trip while @TravleingMelMT is on a press tour in NY. We stopped in at Monticello on a rainy afternoon to learn about Jefferson’s architectural masterpiece. We took a tour of the interior and wandered around the grounds before the rain really hit. The boys loved trying to come up with ways to improve on the gardens. I pondered the paradoxes of Jefferson’s zealous pursuit of liberty and willingness to own human beings. . We’d started our museum tour a week or so ago at the Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati learning about the horrors of slavery and we’d spent the day before at Gettysburg. We are getting constant reminders of some of the inhumanity of our national history…and I’m glad. For centuries, we’ve glossed over this national stain on our history. I want our boys to look it squarely in the face so they can begin to understand the price others have had to pay for our own freedom. It’s harsh but it’s true. . At the same time, I don’t want them to lose track of the wonderful ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence even if we haven’t reached them yet. It’s one of the strengths of our system and country that we continue to strive for a more perfect union, for a fuller and more considered understanding of “all men are created equal..” . . . . . #monticello#americanhistory#thomasjefferson#virginiaisforlovers#LoveVA#worldschool#homeschool#familytravel#travelwithkids#Virginia#ushistory#historylovers#president#palladian#colonial#americanrevolution#architecture#foundingfather@tjmonticello#charlottesville#charlottesvilleva#olddominion
