But now it’s pretty clear that you want this all to change. I welcome the change away from favoring only the privileged in American education, of dismissing the masses of kids who don’t measure up to the few. That’s not who we are. Not here. Not in the United States.
It is my guess that you want ALL of your children to be able to climb up onto your divine knees and reach up and grab that beautiful necklace and put it in their little hands and stare at the beautiful jewels on there and see all that light reflecting through it, all that light in all those languages, all that poetry, all that culture, all that architecture, all that dance all that love, all that human sharing that are sparklingly you.
You know all this, of course. We just need to say it out loud here, to remind ourselves of things you never forget because you invented them. We just don’t know what to do to make our jobs work right now. We just want to reach out and tug at the hem of your garment, or rather clutch, even grab onto you for dear life right now.
