That moment when talking about respecting people's humanity triggers an unsolicited angry response.
We can be better than this.
Our democracy depends on our ability to have respectful discourse framed in acceptance of the fact that we are all human.

Today, my heartfelt prayers are with the victims who perished in the devastating 9/11 attacks & the countless heroes who valiantly tried to save them. May God continue to bless them, and comfort their loved ones, & may God continue to bless our beautiful and grateful nation 💙🇺🇸
This is a compelling news story that I will share with our Supt & School Board. I encourage our public to continue sharing any/all news reports on novel K12 mitigation practices:
“Elementary surveillance testing doesn't bring big spike in COVID-19 cases” https://www.berkeleyside.org/2021/09/01/no-big-spike-in-covid-19-cases-after-three-days-of-elementary-school-surveillance-testing
I want to reassure families & school staff that your input is very valuable re: recent COVID-related challenges: contact-tracing protocols, community notification letters, length of isolation wait-times and asynchronous learning options. FCPS is working hard to fix these issues

First production by Black composer to be staged by the @MetOpera. 138 years being shut out ends now. @T_Blanchard #antiracism.
The Met opened in 1883 and has put on 300 titles. Not one has been by a Black composer. Until now.
