Yesterday I heard James Kofi Annan tell his story of child slave to business man to freedom fighter for the children in Ghana. Check out this CNN video for a taste of what I had the privilege of hearing first hand.
His story moved me and compelled me to think about how I can use my corner of the world to help make things right. Modern day slavery is overwhelming. But when I think about just my corner, the corner filled with writing and teaching writers, I realize a little can make a difference. Read how James Kofi Annan inspires me to approach Common Core and PARCC with my post, “Story = Narrative + Informational + Opinion“.
Unhurried. Finding the magic in the middle of living. Capturing a life of ridiculous grace + raw stories.
