The Unknown Story of Pocahontas

Written By: Charlotte Cushman  |  Posted: Monday, June 6th, 2011

            Yesterday was the anniversary of the landing at Jamestown How many people know the story of its survival, a story that reflects our American heritage?

            I am firm in my conviction that children should know the history of their own country and I find it sad and frightening that multiculturalism is making headway in education. It is very damaging to allow an educational environment where children celebrate everybody else's culture or history, but not their own.  I have been appalled to talk to young adults who don't know that the United States was the first country established on the basis of individual rights, have never heard of Patrick Henry or don't understand the meaning of the Declaration of Independence.  We have a rich, wonderful heritage with many meaningful events that need to be shared with our children.
