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.

Throwback Thursday

 When I did my student teaching I taught at Charles City and I was teaching Fifth Grade.

My Teachers were Miss Rogness(sp) and Mr. Cole and I was given a gift from one of the students.  His last name was Sellers.  It is a shot glass filled with sand from the painted desert.

I had it in my desk from then on and I loved it.

The gift that this student gave to me is truly a treasure because it reminds me of him and of all of the students that passed my classroom.

You can find one like it on e-bay for about $25.
