When Leaders Act Like Human Beings
I loved the way that President Obama handled this situation! We all make mistakes - that is part of being human. Good people can have misunderstandings. This doesn't mean that they are racist or hateful. As president, Obama's willingness to admit to his humanity and admit to his mistakes has been a refreshing change.
When a leader acts like a human being (as opposed to a "little god") he or she makes it easier for others to just be human. When a leader admits to mistakes and reaches out to others for reconciliation, he or she makes it easier for others to build bridges and not start wars. We are all Americans. We have plenty of challenges right now. We don't need to fight with each other.
