What Can We Do? – So glad you asked

We can continue to post all the shootings and despair across social media – will that protect our loved ones, I think not. The march in Selma was used to generate media attention to the refusal to let Black folk vote. Equally whenever there is a (what we as viewers believe) is an unnecessary use of force, it has now become standard for the media to over feed us with snippets of the scene and later the media covers the locals who create a one-night vigil that may include additional law breaking activities. We can march from now till the cows come home, but ask yourself, “What change am expecting to see or what can change as a result of my march?” Will the police ask more questions before shooting, will our young men stop shooting each other? Will the school system change their delivery methods? If I march on Monday, will that create a stimulus for prison reform? If not, then it may be time to find our own individual purpose, our own personal values, identify what is important to us individually and collectively. I propose we start with the beginning – our infant babies. Have you have been in the presence of a baby and make that “baby noise” to induce a smile? Or have you ever turned your head at the right moment and see a precious baby in a stroller and at that exact moment the baby smiles at you? Who will take care of our babies while we go to war in the streets? Who will take care of the babies while we are locked up for protesting another black man tased and killed? Continue reading

The Walk of Shame

Teaching – what a wonderful profession, a teacher gets the privilege of shaping the “minds” of the future. What a powerful profession to have the ability to make or break a student’s mind and/or emotional welfare one grade at a time. I watched a group of first grade students fall apart, break down and begin to cry at the thought of being reprimanded for their behavior. This same scenario was true for a group of 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. There is a classroom management technique known as “the walk of shame” in this writer’s opinion. Continue reading
