Teaching imho is much like parenting and life itself. There are ups and there are downs. There are times of brilliance, stupidity, love, hate, and every emotion and reaction in between. The things that make each of us go on living are the wondrous moments. I watched on comedy central on October 30th the Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear. The entire thing was organized, uplifting, fun, and left me with an incredible sense of hope.
This whole sanity thing is what we need to embrace. Tolerance and working with each other is not anything new but the media especially, has forgotten how important it is to our greatness as a nation. We can do this and in fact every single day we have these opportunities and rise to the occasion. We have more in common with each other than we know. We can agree to disagree and still come to a compromise to solve the problems that need to be solved. It is time that the media focuses on the solutions and stop making every single issue a crisis that polarizes us.
So I raise a glass to working with all of you. To wondrous moments- may each of us have many more of them!!!
