"I don’t…" I sound like I am being strangled. "My family is all dead, or traitors; how can I…”
I am not making any sense. The sobs take over my body, my mind, everything. He gathers me to him, and bathwater soaks my legs. His hold is tight. I listen to his heartbeat and, after a while, find a way to let the rhythm calm me.
"I’ll be your family now," he says.

"With few exceptions, the public school teachers I’ve known over the years are among the most committed people I know, working long hours for relatively little pay on one of the most important tasks of our society – educating our children. Yes, the tenure system has to be reformed, and a few teachers aren’t doing a good enough job. But these aren’t the real problem. Our public school teachers have become scapegoats for a system that’s underfunded, underequipped, underappreciated, and overwhelmed."
- Robert Reich, economist

either way, still fucked up
it’s 2014, alexander g bell is dead, sign language will not make your kid stupid
This is interesting because I grew up with a best friend who is deaf and his mother hardly knew any signs. I never realized until I got older how sad that is. No wonder he ended up so troubled. This is not okay. Take responsibility for your kids, okay? If you can bring a child into the world then you should be prepared to adjust.
