A lot of turmoil has occurred in the past year. A lot of turmoil happens every year. I’m not sure why this year seems any different.

But it seems different.

These are no longer pages in history books, or news clips from “before my time”.

This is my time. This is the time of my children.

On a whim I tweeted something short (aren’t all tweets?) and serious- “I want to be part of the solution. Who’s with me?”

I don’t know what it means, but I want in. I’m not looking for credit. I’m not looking to be a trend setter, but as the famous Ghandi quote says “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

I’m tired of the finger pointing, classifying, and dehumanizing.

This is my time. This is our time. And I want to be part of the solution. I want the world better when I leave than it was when I came.

What does that mean? How do we do that?

I’m searching for answers and open to discussion.

That’s all I’ve got for now…Captain out.

  1. I don’t know how, but I’m with you, Captain! That’s why I switched streams to be an educator – to help raise awesome, thoughtful, empathetic and capable children for our world.
