A Parents Responsibility
I had previously read a news article about a family who was upset when a bakery would not spell their childs name on a birthday cake. That little boy's name is Adolf Hitler. They named his two younger siblings JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell. This family is once again in the news only this time the children have been taken from the home, but reason as to why is not being let out to the public. My question is as a parent, what responsibility do we have to our children in giving them names? The parents insist they are not racist and yet look at these names. In a time when celebs name their children things like Apple, where is our culture as Americans going with names? Just a strange thought I wanted to share.
