History Lesson

As much as we wanted to visit the Sturgis One Room School Museum today, we couldn't, as it wasn't open, and neither was the Pocomoke Chamber of Commerce which we were instructed to contact in order to make an appointment to see the museum.

So bummed.

George and I had explained to Harper and Zane that this school was different from the one room school we have back in Beaver.  This school was specifically for African Americans, during a time when blacks and whites were separated from going to school together, IF blacks had the opportunity to go to school at all.

Zane's response?

"Oh, yeah, I know that time.  That was before we had God.  We only had Kings that ruled the planet."

(pause)

Correct.
