Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

Found for Friday


This is from a Facebook post from one of my former students….It was better than any jokes I had found.

Denver, CO ·

Lunch experience in Denver airport:

Sitting next to a mom and her daughter. Kid is maybe three, wearing all pink with a pink ribbon in her hair, stuffed rabbit in one hand and eating the bite sized pieces of pizza her mom cut up for her with the other. A bird that somehow got in the terminal lands, grabs a piece of the pizza and takes off.

Kid: Mom! That bird stole my pizza!

Mom: It's ok dear, he's probably hungry...

Kid: You better fly away bird! I'm going to kick your feathered candy ass if I catch you, mother f***er!

Mom: *Horrified look in my direction*

Practice safe eating - always use condiments.
