Back to it

It's happened before, and it always makes me laugh. I was just at the Mondawmin Mall Target and saw a neighbor from up the street who recently returned from a year in Afghanistan. We talked a bit and he told me "I don't know how you do it in the City schools. I could never handle that."

YOU JUST CAME BACK FROM A WAR! Teaching in the City is difficult, but BEING IN A WAR IS MORE DIFFICULT!

They're only children. I can handle them all.

I think I'd rather go to war than teach in Baltimore, too. And I'm a pacifist.
