Decided to have a Blockbuster night. Rented Freedom Writers.
Now if that movie doesn’t inspire you, what in the world will? I was humbled and moved. As the credits rolled, I found myself thinking about how to live up to a teacher who had the guts to persistently fend off naysaying and flat-out rejection and effect real change. And of course it particularly spoke to me because she uses writing as a tool to reach her students.
Bless her for using her gift. The Freedom Writers Foundation is on my radar now.
