Life moves us through ecosystems, an experience of cycles. Water flows. Seasons come and go. All shift images along the journey. We become our own moving pictures, some moments in color and others surrounding us with the starkness of black and white. We never know the time of new beginnings or endings, only that in due time all cycles come full circle.

Spent time over winter break considering the shifts in education that have occurred over my lifetime - not just tools but also the experiences of new generations of teachers entering the profession and the expectations for learning and and learning

Today -one day - many pause to say thank you and give thanks. We might ask also " am I generous enough? Kind enough? Do I live a life of thankfulness? Do I consider those who aren't like me as worthy of my attention and care? Am I willing to see beyond my family and neighbors to find the good in others and give thanks that most of the people who share the planet care about humanity just as I do?

Today I reflect on seasons of life and the changes that our paths may bring.

John, 

for writing this - I think you have put into words what many, I hope, feel. At the same time, whether it's stop-and-frisk or stand-your-ground or fire first-question later, we seem to have a cultural mindset among some about boys and men of color that begins with a negative frame. It's disturbing and each of the cases -  Martin - Davis- Lopez - seem to be moving us farther down a slippery slope in which common sense and good judgement are not operative. I blame it on an incivility that permeates media, lack of cross-cultural face-to-face connectivity, isolation within communities, fears embedded in a dominant white culture, and handy weaponry that makes bad judgement and lack of common sense easily acted upon. No parent should have to fear when their son(s) are out that they might lose their lives in what seems like random acts of violence but which are likely not as random as they seem. No parent should go to bed at night thinking that the color of their son's skin increases the odds that he will be killed or hurt because of his color. We should be better than this.  All of us.
