Today was so fucked
Two awesome things happened and then one fucking terrible awful thing happened and my brain and heart can’t handle all of this up and down.

Hundreds of students walked out of classrooms around suburban Denver on Tuesday in protest over a conservative-led school board proposal to focus history education on topics that promote citizenship, patriotism and respect for authority, in a show of civil disobedience that the new standards would aim to downplay.
The youth protest in the state’s second-largest school district follows a sick-out from teachers that shut down two high schools in the politically and economically diverse area that has become a key political battleground.
Student participants said their demonstration was organized by word of mouth and social media. Many waved American flags and carried signs, including messages that read “There is nothing more patriotic than protest.”
"I don’t think my education should be censored. We should be able to know what happened in our past," said Tori Leu, a 17-year-old student who protested at Ralston Valley High School in Arvada.

A cats purr vibrates at a frequency that promotes bone health and aids in healing. So the kitty is probably trying to purr him better.

What were some of your favorite books you read in high school?
Bonus points if they’re shortish/on the easier side to read!
I have 12th graders, not all of them are at their “reading level.” Many are not native speakers of english- but they’re going to get through Frankenstein and Shakespeare this fall- so keep that in mind. They are smart capable young people. I just want to give them a text that’s exciting for them.
Yo I was one of the few people who loved a separate peace. In high school I was really into tender is the night (we had a choice between that and gatsby), pride and prejudice (Emma could work too), dos Passos’ USA trilogy, Hemingway’s a sun also rises, on the road, and if you want a really good but really gory account of WWII the memoir with the old breed is great. Also I remember really loving their eyes were watching god and I first read slaughterhouse five in 11th grade. Hope this helps?!
