teachable moments

So today is a great opportunity to walk the talk. I can model for my students what unity, dignity, and acceptance look like. I can show them that I stand with minorities, immigrants, and LGBT students. I will protect my students. I will show them that it's possible to disagree without denigrating. I will show them that bigotry is not tolerable. And I can explain that many voters, frustrated with economics, chose a businessman to try to create change. I will not express my personal disappointment or displeasure in who won. I will stress that the system worked.

It is a bittersweet day, isn't it! I, too, will get behind our new President even though I loathe him!!

Yes, the system worked. Confusing, though it is! Thanks for a lovely post.
