February 23, 2021: Quote of the Day

“Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shores, the scar of racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles of racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its Indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it.”

-Martin Luther King Jr.

Teacher Humor

Being a TEACHER is a lot like being a ROCK STAR:

– You work hard to keep the attention of a distracted crowd.
– Your fans freak out when they see you in public.
– Groupies line up to follow you everywhere.
– You hear your name being called out all the time.
