it is not enough to stare up the steps – we must step up the stairs.”

another polar vortex day
another movie adventure
four neighborhood kids
lots of action
lots of adventure.
“you never forget the neighborhood kids you grew up with.”
“your next step is simple. you are the first domino.”
and just like that

gallup park, ann arbor, mi, usa – april 2018
one of my former students
who i now work with after school
created this travel brochure
complete with her plan for ‘how to get there’
using an innovative method i hadn’t considered
but it makes perfect sense from her perspective.
“we learn by taking action and seeing whether it works or not.”
here’s to the ones who
march, walk, talk, stand up, and take action
on behalf of what they believe in
today and every day
even when it’s inconvenient .
“a cause may be inconvenient, but it’s magnificent.
it’s like champagne or high heels, and one must be prepared to suffer for it.”
