Day 403 Relief

Relief

We breathe in relief;
Still, we ponder next steps so
we all grow and bloom.

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem.

Today, we breathe a sigh of relief.

Accountability happened.

It does not bring back George Floyd for his family, but it does the actions taken by one man were wrong.

I agree with my friend Joy, who tweeted:

We do what we can, and that means we cannot ever remain silent on true injustice. Her tweet takes you to William Ferriter’s blog post about why, as a teacher, he does not stay silent on these issues. It’s worth a read, more than once: When Teachers Are Silent.

And LearnForJustice shared possible resources for teachers in discussing the issue of racism in the United States. Click for the resources:

So, yes– we breath relief that finally the “system” spoke the truth. But take care that the next goblins will be out with misinformation– learn how to deal with misinformation from this thread by MediaWise:

A relief. Breathe. But the work must go on:

I share these because it’s so difficult to express the frustration that in 2021 we, in the United States, still do not honor the lives of all people. This cannot be the fate of humanity– because truly, we are one people on a planet that needs all of us working together to solve serious problems in our world so we all grow and bloom and thrive.

So, yes. Relief. Breathe. We still have work to do.
