In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.
-Albert Camus

Dear Exchange Community,

We wish we had the power to help more.

We understand what a demanding time this is for so many as you face multiple crises at once, such as dangerous winter storms, the continuing pandemic, economic uncertainty, and serious fatigue.

One small way we are trying to support you is to offer a free resource each week. If you haven’t signed up already, see below. And let others know.

I believe in this quote from writer John Mark Green:

“You are not the darkness you endured. You are the light that refused to surrender.”

And, as the second part of the Albert Camus quote above declares:

“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”

Keep pushing back. We believe in you.

Nancy Rosenow, Exchange publisher, and the Exchange Team

I get the impression that the writer is attributing hate to every thought and every action that does not lead to treating some group with special and extra consideration or unequal treatment in their favor. This is wrong. Many of us, hundreds, even thousands or us in early childhood reject the idea that we are inherently repressive or even racist. With 40 years experience in the early childhood classrooms, I can not think of even one time that one of my staff or even one of our parents treated blacks or Asians or any other group differently than the way other people are treated. In fact, it is just the opposite. I have heard 'we need to give them extra consideration because they are black'. There is NO HATE there. You propagate the potential for hate by your assumption that all of us harbor hate somewhere within. The focus should be on treating all ethnic groups equally, and not assigning hate to all of us who are not from one of those groups. I totally reject your article.
