Quoted @justjenperiod

@TheAmandaGorman As someone who can't say the word "world" because the /r and /l are too damn close together. You and your world-renowned speech bring me so much joy.

That was me until two years ago. You don't have to be able to say world to be able to change it 💛

Win a copy of the poem everyone is talking about, @TheAmandaGorman's THE HILL WE CLIMB.

As the daughter of an English teacher, I take Teacher Appreciation Week seriously. Let's help some amazing teachers win free copies of The Hill We Climb!

After Year 5 read “The Hill we climb”
The video was 7 minutes long so we challenged them to cut it down to under 1 minute picking the bits that they find most inspirational! I think they did a fab job- @TheAmandaGorman

Applause applause!!

This month, we celebrate and honor the significant contributions Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders have made to our nation. This past year, we have seen an unconscionable rise in hate against AAPI Americans. @POTUS and I want you to know: we stand with you.

A reminder that victory would be George Floyd being alive. Every day Black Americans worry if they will be next is another day without justice.

The fact that we know what the verdict SHOULD be but remain unsure of what it WILL be speaks volumes about our nation. We have work to do.

Remember, accountability is what happens after the trauma, justice is the idea that the trauma shouldn’t exist in the first place.

The police have already killed over 300 people in 2021. One verdict does not bring them back.

The demand for justice continues.
