This line changed my life as an educator.

Okay...y'all...I thought we came to Spoutible to leave the toxic waste dump habits of Twitter/Facebook on Twitter/Facebook. Now, there's nothing wrong with healthy discussion. Now, please remember that there ALWAYS is a person behind the screen, and to leave the toxic waste mentality behind.

Drop the distraction and instead look for genuine presence. Unplug and breathe and look into another’s eyes . Ask questions and ponder answers . Cuddle and kiss and cook and sing and daydream and wonder. [Lightly edited]

Over time, if we practice entering this refuge in meditation over and over again, we begin to find it everywhere we are. Every place in our lives becomes a place of practice, a place where we can find refuge.

People would rather create charter schools (that fail at an alarming rate & don't necessarily offer better education) and/or spend taxpayer dollars to send their kids to private schools than do the 1 easy fix for our public education system: elect Democrats – nationwide, statewide, & locally.

David Bowie was always a shining example of integrity. MTV 1983, grilling the DJ about a lack of Black artists on TV:
“I tell you what maybe the Isley Brothers or Marvin Gaye means to a Black 17-year-old. Surely he's part of America as well.”

Facebook was aware their platforms saw 500k inappropriate interactions/day, but only flagged 2 accounts, and only after the NYT reported them.

Why do we do this to ourselves?

This gap between interest and self-confidence—in STEM+athletics—doesn’t exist in our boys. In boys, interest and confidence go hand in hand. But our girls are being told, there are lots of cool career fields … but you probably can’t hack it.
