I know it’s rare for me to post anything other then funny, silly & sweet things about candy or my business but sometimes you have to stand for something other then yourself and today I am doing just that. This simply has to be said, has to be discussed and HAS to be resolved! The state of our schools are in jeopardy and I admit that perhaps I care more now because I am a new mother but nevertheless, I CARE and I care in a very BIG way. Of course I love my child more then words and I want only the best for her but I also love all children in general and think EVERY SINGLE child in America deserves to have a great education, deserves to go to college if they wish and deserves a fair shot at life. Period! So with that being said, I am using my voice and any influence I may have to get others to get of their asses and do something NOW! This may be the first time in your life that you feel compelled to act, it’s my first time and I admit it. Kids need grown ups to be their voice sometimes, so I beg you-Do Something NOW! Do it for my kid, your kid, your neighbors kid, your future kids and even if you don’t have kids or never even want them, do it because it’s the right thing to do! No child deserves to be left behind. I am getting off my soap box now and I thank you for listening.
Fixing America’s public education system won’t be easy — but together, it’s possible.
