  • In San Francisco.

    And attended an
    Education Revolution.
    My fifth year.
  • I heard CA Lieutenant
    Governor Gavin Newsom talk ....
    About how
    He succeeded
    Not despite of
    But in conjunction with
    His dyslexia.

    How failure option
    As long as it doesn't end there
    That's how we learn...
    To make things better
    And better
    And best.
  • I stopped by
    The art display
    Done by kids with
    Learning differences
    That I helped set up yesterday

    I love the bright colors
    And creativity
    And view of the world
    ...through their eyes.
  • I listened to some teens talk
    About how difficult it is
    To have their brains
    Process differently
    And how they feel like
    A square block
    Trying to fit in a round hole
    In school
    Because learning
    Is set in a certain way
    For average
    And they aren't average
    They are

    But they say
    They are proud to be
    Not despite of
    Their learning differences
    But in conjunction with
    Their unique brain processing
    For who knows
    Maybe tomorrow they will be
    Governor of California

    I got teary eyed.
  • I stopped by to see
    My son's picture on the wall
    At AT&T Park
    As he was home sick
    And I am here
    For him
    And others like him
    To say
    Be who you are
    And proud of it
    For I know you will do great things
    Even if they are small things
    For sometimes
    Greatness comes in
    small packages
    In the still...small...voice.
  • I stopped by the Giants store
    To buy my son
    The tee shirt of a champion
