Belladonna has a project for World History. She has to pick her Top Ten most evil people in history. This is her list.
- Justin Beiber
- Saddam Hussein
- Joseph Mengele
- Osama bin Laden
- Mao Zedong
- Pol Pot
She is putting together little verbal sketches of each stinker.
I think this is a worthy task. Kids need perspective regarding the evil that humans are capable of.
One other thing that gives me hope is that Belladonna is learning that much evil occurs when history and learning is discarded because it is inconvenient.
As bad as Washington D.C. is, they have a ways to go before they can crack the top nine.
