    Steve and I saw the movie Selma at an advanced screening and left the film knowing we needed to take his kids to see it. The kids are 8, 11 and 14. We decided to talk to them about the (SPOILER ALERT!) explosion in the beginning of the film because we wanted them to be prepared. What I was not prepared for was the agony I experienced watching their hearts break. The 8 and 14 year olds cried. We talked at length afterwards about faith rooted organizing and why is so important to be anti-racist activists as white people. I am still raw from the experience and wonder is there a way to show kids injustice in the world without breaking their hearts?
