As I read the book I kept wondering what I would have done if I were different people ion the book. Of course I know what I think/hope I would have done. But it is hard to imagine.
I do not think I could have had the forbearance of Melba and the others not to fight back in the face of such abuse.
As a parent could I have let/encouraged/supported my child to take that abuse for the greater good?
As a teacher would I have been strong enough to stop the abuse in my presence?
