  •  My dad was a teacher. (9+ / 0-)

    Some years growing up I didn't see him a whole lot during the school year, because teaching wouldn't pay the bills.  So he coached after school, tended bar in the evenings, and similar things to bring in a little extra cash.  I know it's not unique or an extreme hardship - I was privileged enough to have two parents to raise me in a decent home in a decent school district.  But still I can't help but resent sometimes that, working full time with an advanced degree and professional certification, my dad had to be away from his kids to mix drinks at a bar to make ends meet.  There's something wrong with a society that makes that true.

    "...the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die." RIP Senator. We miss you.
