If we are going to get out of the messes we are in, I believe we have to start with a more accurate image of ourselves and the world of which we are a part. A thread about #system boundaries, abortion bans, climate change, gun safety, and more.
We each are flows, more like flames or whirlpools than rocks or billiard balls, in constant exchange with the 'environment. Your 'boundaries' are so much more fluid than everyday perception (in this western industrial growth society at least) suggests.
I mean this literally - not metaphorically. What was 'not you' moments before you drank a glass of water now is 'you.'

THREAD: ¡Berta Vive! Three (3) years ago today, Berta Cáceres, a Lenca indigenous woman, land and human rights defender, was assassinated. #JusticiaParaBerta #3añosSinJusticia
In 1993, she cofounded @COPINHHONDURAS to address the growing threats posed to Lenca communities by illegal logging, open-pit mining, plantation owners, water privatization, militarization, & fight for their territorial rights and improve their livelihoods. #BertaVive
With mandates from the community, Berta Cáceres helped wage a 10-year campaign against the Agua Zarca Dam which was to be built over water considered sacred by the Lenca people, and would have endangered their water source. #JusticiaParaBerta #WaterIsLife

My father was part of the greatest generation. He was 17. A Marine. He only knew he was poor and needed the money. He learned later how important his service was. He taught me how dangerous fascism is. We must fight for freedom.

(THREAD) Imagine walking into school - #FirstDaysofSchool. The most significant thing that anyone wants is to know that they belong, feel included, cared for, to feel significant, to know that they matter. As educators, families give us their greatest trust each day #MoralPurpose
From the moment students "step" onto school grounds, everything they see, hear, feel and experience gives them a message about whether they are valued, they matter, if this is a safe place to be in, grow, take risks, challenge, create, to LEARN. #3rdTeacher #GlobalCompetencies
We know that in order for Ss to learn, they must feel safe & included. Neuroscience helps us to understand that when ANY one feels unsafe, theyre not able to learn, engage in complex thinking. Solid #assessment is important & necessary, but without feeling safe, its not effective

Today a crew from the city of @lawrenceks defaced our building without our building owner's consent or our approval...they also conspicuously lacked painting experience, knowledge of historic code, and any interest in preserving the appearance of our downtown. After:
Before:
The After photo above is actually how it appeared *after* we first discovered what happened and asked that sloppier efforts be remedied. If the goal is to fix unsightly graffiti... major fail, #lfk.
