Quote of the Week

This week's quotation was submitted by a student in our junior English class. It's by Dr, Seuss, who is one of my all-time favorite thinkers. Here it is:

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."

I liked this quotation because it fits in with all that we're doing in all of our English classes this year. It's all about social justice and social awareness and working together. Everything. We're blogging, discussing, thinking, creating, and working together to make this school, this town, this state, this nation, this world a better place. A more thoughtful and considerate and compassionate and tolerant place. For all. Sounds daunting and unrealistic and all of that, but kinda wonderful, too, huh?

So, thanks, Ms. Junior, for adding to our year-long focus on social justice. It's going to be awesome.
