    A Call To Action

    A Call To Action

    Our communities are filled with new nuances and a new evolution of the mind. Family as the foundation of society has changed and society has been shaken. We need stabilizers who can help our children survive the new normalcy. They have to be armed with compassion and love for the future to win this battle within our community. We need individuals who will take the time and make a difference. And so we lift out this call to action expecting those who want to change the future for the better to come forward full and prepare to advance the agenda that will prepare all children for the long road ahead trying to figure out the future and how to make their path in their studies.

    In March, when North Carolina was put under a stay at home order, it seemed like a blessing in disguise. As a new teacher, I felt like moving to online school was going to give me a chance to breathe, a time to play catch up on my own mental and physical health. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
