Let's Lift Every Voice and Sing... and Celebrate Where The New Learning Will Have to Come From

This morning I am writing in deep reverence and awe after thinking more about the upcoming film "Waiting for Superman" and about where the new learning will have to come from.... from us... from progressive educators ourselves... willing to fight for social change.. and rising to the occasion ...because that's what's needed... I have been thinking.

With that thought and feeling resonating through me, that's when stuff miraculously started to me just happening to see a post in my Facebook stream about James Weldon Johnson's Lift Every Voice and Sing...written in 1899. Wow!. Even then, in James Weldon Johnson's life and in his song, he already celebrates where the new learning has to come from... from a proud people ...capable of raising the bar educationally, socially, and morally... liberating all. See more about James Weldon Johnson on Wikipedia

Wow, is it great and reassuring to know that "super people" have historically been and continue to be among us. So let's just leverage that, standing on the shoulders of those who came before us, and rising to greatness ourselves in service to humanity... and we don't have to "wait" for them... we just need to be them. Call me and let's continue to connect about delivering the mission-critical learning.. a new world needs. 425-780-6872.
