 I believe that the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in all American public schools is a significant and necessary step towards a more inclusive and just society. CRT seeks to acknowledge and address the systemic racism deeply embedded in America's history, institutions, and policies, which often go unnoticed or unchallenged.

Education is a powerful tool for societal transformation, and teaching CRT allows students to understand the complex and nuanced ways that racism operates and perpetuates inequality. By learning about the historical and ongoing impacts of racism, students can develop a more comprehensive understanding of America's fabric and recognize the necessity for continued progress and change.

Critics of CRT often argue that it promotes division or perpetuates victimhood. However, this perspective overlooks the fact that true equality can only be achieved when we confront and dismantle the structural barriers that prevent marginalized communities from accessing the same opportunities and rights as others. By teaching CRT, we encourage students to critically analyze and challenge those systems, empowering them to become active agents in the fight against racism and injustice.

It is crucial to emphasize that CRT is not about pitting one race against another or fostering animosity. On the contrary, it offers a framework to understand how racism persists and how collective action can lead to systemic change. By promoting historical accuracy, cultural understanding, and empathy, CRT allows students to develop a sense of social responsibility and a commitment to creating a more equitable society for all.

For America to truly fulfill its ideals of freedom and equality, it is imperative that students receive a comprehensive education that includes an honest examination of the country's racial history and ongoing struggles. By teaching CRT to all American children in every public school, we lay the foundation for a more informed and compassionate society that strives towards equality, justice, and dignity for every individual, regardless of their race or background.

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.
