Today was my first day back at school. I answered over a hundred emails today, and have several more to address tomorrow.
It has been a very tough summer. In order of occurrence;
I lost one of my dogs.
The axel on my SUV broke going down the highway at 70 mph.
I got stung a dozen times by yellow jackets.
My brother died.
The car was the easiest thing to patch up. The loss of a pet is always painful. The yellow jackets hurt and then were itchy for a week. Then they were fine.

It's been a tough summer.
The powers that be seem to be determined to undermine public education here in North Carolina. Folks are trying to remain upbeat, but it's tough.
So, on Facebook today, my friend, colleague, and one time mentor Lynda Reilich (she may not know I think of her as a mentor) posted a video that was just what I have been needing.
I've posted it below and hope that it lifts you in the same way it lifted me.
Hope your school year is blessed and fruitful!
