“As a boy I grew up reading the stories of great Americans -- Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Ben Franklin, John F. Kennedy’s PT 109. While all these men had flaws, their achievements inspired me in several ways – to love our country and the freedoms it provides; to strive for excellence; to be willing to sacrifice for other’s betterment; to be a man of character, not self-indulgence. As I have grown older, I have steadfastly refused to get rid of those books when my wife suggests I need to “de-clutter”. I believe the reason is that they helped define my ideals as a young boy. I grew up idealizing men that sacrificed to build something bigger and better for themselves and their families. Young people today also need heroes or role models to emulate. As a home schooling Dad I have seen the power of my children reading biographies - this time of great Christians - to help them visualize the possibilities God has for them. Sadly, as a boy I read virtually none of the stories of African-Americans mentioned in this reading guide. Later in life I heard and came to appreciate the stories of men like Jackie Robinson and the Tuskegee Airmen who exemplified the courage, vision, and faith of those Americans whose stories I read long ago. On one level, I don’t see this as an issue of ethnicity, black versus white, but as merely studying the lives of great Americans. On another level, as a Christian, I see the need to strive for reconciliation between groups. I did not commit the injustice of past generations. However, my choice is to confess and renounce the sins of my forefathers as Nehemiah in the Bible did, or live under the spiritual fall-out wrought by that history. Reading these stories will enable all to better understand the experiences of African-Americans, so we can build bridges of understanding between groups.”
