I am blessed to have a childhood friend who offers thoughtful, comforting words in times of grief and fear. This week, she wrote to remind me “how much good there will always be to live and work and fight for.”
I saw that good this week, as I went with 5th graders on a field trip to Amanda’s Farm to Fork in Lula, and as I passed out broccoli samples during two taste tests.
My students and their opportunities to learn about and eat food that nourishes their bodies and our community, no matter their race, gender identity, ethnicity or religion–that is the good for which I will continue to live and work and fight and serve.
