April shorts – 24

I would not want to be a high school teacher working while this challenging political arena prevails.   My hat goes off to Nick Gregory, a high school social studies teacher who posted this open letter and concluded with this statement:

“Mr. T………, you are a reminder that progress is not dependent on a specific political party or the ambitions of one man. Advancing American democracy demands a citizenry that is vigilant and informed.

You, Mr. T……., are the pathetic reminder that we needed a pathetic reminder.”

(You see I don’t even want his name to appear in my blog.)

Thank you Mr. Gregory for naming a nail and pounding it vigorously on the head.
