The fondest memory I have of my father was the day he said to me " Ayo, what will you use to surpass me? I surpassed my father, my father never bought a car in his life, I bought one and drove him in it. If you buy a car tomorrow, you haven't surpassed me. #FathersDay #Thread
No matter how more expensive it is to mine. My father never built a house of his own, he stayed until his death in the house that was co-builded with his brother. I built my own house. Ayo, what will you use to surpass me?? "
When I ponder upon this golden conversation I see two sides to it.

One side says, Ayo, hustle o! Make you no go fall the generational trend of erasing paucity started by your father. Like Drake, he started from the bottom, did house help jobs to study. Became an engineer.

The 8-year-old son of a CIA officer called these shoes “Dad’s lucky boots” after he learned how his father wore these boots while deployed as part of Team Alpha, the first tactical team sent to Afghanistan after 9/11.

#FathersDay #HappyFathersDay #MyDadMyHero #thanksdad
The CIA officer wore these boots almost 24 hours a day for 3 months: climbing mountains, forging rivers, & riding Afghan horses.

He also survived a deadly ambush by al-Qaida prisoner-fighters in the Qala-I-Jangi fortress on November 25, 2001.

Now in CIA Museum, these artifacts bear the title “Dad’s Lucky Boots” to recognize sacrifices our officers & their families make in service to their country.

#HappyFathersDay to all the dads who serve. A grateful nation celebrates you today.

Good morning, Senator @KeithPerryFL, and #HappyFathersDay! My name is Ryan and I am a #PublicEd advocate living, learning, and teaching in #HCPS just south of you in the Tampa area. I read your op-ed in the @GainesvilleSun and would like to offer some additional perspective (1)
(2) and perhaps clarify why you are seeing so many negative op-eds about what you and your fellow legislators have wrought over the last 20 years (and especially the last 3-5). I will move through your op-ed paragraph by paragraph in the hopes of sharing additional data / studies
(3) First paragraph: to say that a "claim is completely false" is absurd, because we, the actual educators who are working with our students every single day, must live with the ramifications created by unfundated mandates as well as constant changes and disruptions from testing.
