has been in the headlines
Dr. Seuss Enterprises
will stop publishing six titles because,
according to their statement,
"These books portray people
in ways that are hurtful and wrong."
They've made a business choice
that is consistent with their values.
Nobody is cancelling Dr. Seuss.
Let's stop the divisive rhetoric
and take a page from their book.
Their stated mission is to
support children and families with
"messages of hope,
The tonic we need,
Let's follow their lead...
We WILL listen in our rooms,
and we WILL listen in our zooms
We WILL listen here and there...
We will LISTEN
