Happy Soul Food Friday to You!
Hope you had a good week.
If you are like the rest of us, you probably really value your freedom.
On closer inspection you will notice there are two kinds of freedom:
Freedom to and Freedom from
Ironically at the end of the day, freedom seldom is free…
Speaking of freedom…
If you are local and free to join us on Thursday Feb 2nd we would love to tap your energy- and share ours- at the Re-Energize Education event on the USS Midway.
We now have over 400+ kindred spirits coming together to model leadership and support education with local showcase groups, student exhibits and national panelists flying in from all around the country.
Superintendents are paying for Principals. Principals are paying for Teachers. Organizations are sponsoring Individuals. More than 100 teachers are able to go at no charge. It is a beautiful thing!
You can still sign up at: http://www.re-energizeeducation.org/
Speaking of the Midway…
The Midway Islands as their name suggests are roughly midway between Japan and North America
Last year Japan really took a real hit with the trifecta of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear radiation.
We had the freedom to help and as you will see many nations of the world rallied around a common cause. A lot can happen when people come together as one…
Not insignificant to the following story is the role a teacher plays; as this individual example shines the spotlight on one person making a difference, many people coming together, and national boundaries dissolving in this outpouring of collective support.
Man’s inhumanity to man is egregious.
(Hu)man’s kindness for one another is transformational!
“May all beings be free from suffering.
May all beings be peaceful and joyful.
May all beings true direct experience, know the true nature of their own being…”
