I spent yesterday & today judging speech events for #DISD. Every time I'm re-encouraged by & for the next generation.
I recognized how frustrated I was by people saying that certain students were crisis actors initially for multiple reasons, but specifically because I SEE & HEAR these students speak. To de-legitimize their hurt, fear, sorrow, and outrage... I just cannot stay silent. This is real.
I am so proud of #marchforourlives, even though I personally did not participate. I look forward to reading all about it tomorrow after some R&R... And I look forward to the future. <3
