The events of the past few weeks (Baltimore) leave me largely speechless and still processing… as I process I am purposefully feeding my spirit/soul/mind with words of wisdom, strength, and hope.
Last night, I re-watched this speech by Susan Asiyanbi (Executive Vice President of the program continuum at Teach For America, where I work). I had the opportunity to see this speech in person in January at a conference. Her words moved me to tears then and again last night.
Susan’s words remind me that in the midst of our most challenging moments, we must keep dreaming.
I’m still dreaming….are you?
