This is a very, very cool little article about some really, really cool kids. I had no idea this school existed, even though it's only about an hour away from my house. The fact that these kids care enough to do something to save and preserve this place is so touching to me. What tugs at my little heart-strings even more is that not one of these kids is black! These kids are the epitome of what we teach here at CCK-if you truly care about diversity, you care about ALL diversity. Not just the diversity that affects you directly. If that's the case, you don't really care about diversity-you care about yourself. And let's face it folks, that's different. So check out the article, applaud these children (yes, children!) for the amazing and important work they are doing, and use their work to inspire us to look beyond ourselves.
Like the new hashtag? I just came up with it (I swear-I checked Twitter and nothing came up!). So use it!!! Often! Let's start a movement!

I read this article and I was moved as well. Sometimes it is a challenge to feel hopefully about race relations in our country and then you read something like this. Thank you for bringing this article to my attention!
