Today was a holiday from school, in honor of the great Civil Rights movement leader, Martin Luther King Jr. I sit here thinking about his "dream" and can't help but feel proud of the progress our country has made. I know we still have a LONG way to go in the fight for racial equality and the end of hatred, but I appreciate every single day that I can go to work at my inner-city school and see the positive relationships and attitudes among our diverse student population. My students get so angry about the injustice and racial attitudes that many of our citizens faced prior to the Civil Rights movement, they cannot even imagine it. Their positive attitudes give me hope that each generation will become more and more united and less hateful. It is a beautiful dream.......
Did I mention how great it is to have this day off? Especially when one is in the mood to scrap and has a million other things going on this week! LOL. So of course I scrapped all day long, with a long break at lunch to meet my honey:)
Created this layout for April's Teal Circle Journal. I LOVE teal too!! I think it looks much cuter IRL!
Then I did this one.....tried to make it masculine, since the event was a heavy metal concert! It was sooooo hard for me not to put a flower on this!!
And then this one of me and Jenny, having lunch downtown right before Christmas.
And now I must sign off....working out with my personal trainer tonight!
