Lesson Day 13, and Ratios of Sweat to Sorrow: “Refuse to Succumb…”

Inspiring Critical Thinking and Community via Books, Lessons, and Story

     This week’s lesson plan is Day 13/67: Five Month GED/HiSET, Ratio of Fact to Opinion, Adulting, and Discoveries?

   I continue to sweat over following Toni Morrison’s advice, rather than giving in to the sorrow of these recent days.  Her admonition reminds me that we have indeed been blessed with more hope than those who did their work from far worse places: 

“This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.”

     So, I continue to work on editing, because despite the pain of this world, “it is also critical to refuse to succumb to its malevolence.”

     I look forward to hearing your opinions, Thoughtful Readers.

We can really  Do Better.
