Day 19: Exhaustion and Purple Hearts for Courage

Dear Readers,

I’m seriously tired. It’s been non stop.

In a recent FairTest Resistance Reform News, the story about us and the petition makes the list (second from top).

Last night, I read a comment on one of the news stories here that broke my heart. A student ¬†expressed how discouraging it was to have spoken up, gotten so many petition signatures, and was left feeling ignored and unheard. I offered words of support and others did, too. It’s ¬†not fair that students have to deal with this nonsense.

Sharing these purple hearts with you and for anyone who has helped us so far. For those that had the guts to stand up and speak out at our town BOE meeting on Monday, and anyone who is going through this in their town, wherever you are. Thank you for working to save our schools.
