and NOT sad tears.
The entire school is working on our Black History Month program for the end of February and my 4th and 5th grade are singing this FABULOUS song with the chorus taken from the iconic speech from Martin Luther King Jr’s Free At Last. My 5th grade has been working on this song only since Monday – and today they sang it with SUCH raw emotion and power, (and nailing the words and melody, I must say!) I had to stop conducting and burst into tears.
This year has been such a difficult horrid year. I’m seriously looking at transfer options as well as opportunities in surrounding counties. But this made this week worth it all!
