MLK’s Price to Pay

He didn’t die for civil rights.

He was assassinated by the government.

In 1999, the US government admitted guilt and gave the King family $100 for their grief.

Land of the Free. Home of the Brave.

And people have the nerve to get offended when we say ‘Black Live Matters’.

Manic Monday

So far this school year, I used a day and half of my vacation time.

This is a record for me because I usually blow through 5-7 days by now.

When I was in school, I never got perfect attendance. I used to scoff at the kids who made perfect attendance for the year. It was an accomplishment for me to attend school on a Monday. Jerry Springer used to have the best episodes on Monday and Fridays. I know this because I used stay home and watch.
