Why Ethnic Studies Courses Are Good for White Kids Too

Why Ethnic Studies Courses Are Good for White Kids Too. Great commentary that I classify as “Diversity 2.0” thinking and reasoning. Certainly a shame that history will judge Arizona poorly for this.

Be Unconquered, pt. 4

It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul. The time has come. Finals are here – the challenge that you’ve been building to for the last several months. For some this will be just a simpleContinue reading “Be Unconquered, pt. 4”

Be Unconquered, pt. 3

Beyond this place of wrath and tears, Looms but the horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years, Finds and shall find me unafaid. What would you do if you were not afraid? What could you do if not bound by the possible pitfalls life has laid before us? Fear guides soContinue reading “Be Unconquered, pt. 3”

Be Unconquered, pt. 2https://drmichaelanthony.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php#

So ballads, despite the genre, are my favorite. I find amazing lessons in the most unassuming spaces, and the music industry provides someContinue reading “A Fool in Love”

STUCK

“I’m STUCK daddy, I’m STUCK!” My little girl, Katharine, is just over 2 years old, and she exercises her very budding vocabulary extensively (wonder where she gets that from?) When we are playing and rolling around on the floor I’ll sometime hold on to her, preventing her from standing up or moving. Her understanding ofContinue reading “STUCK”

Whether We Want it or Not

A friend sent me a text recently that changed my topic for this week. He said (and forgive me if this quote belongs to someone else, which I imagine it does) “that life is a constant state of radiation and absorption; to exist is to radiate; to exist is to be the recipient of radiation.Continue reading “Whether We Want it or Not”
