Love to Wisconsin

I don't like to soapbox here; it's not really the place.  But I can't sit by without sending love and support to Erica and Christy and fellow teachers in Wisconsin. 

It's time for politicians to stop demonizing teachers. 

Enough already.

I'm a Canadian & I don't have a clue as to what's going on in Wisconsin - I'm off to do a little research on it!

Wow, Lindsey, thanks so much!! We're really struggling up here - it's not easy for a state to be so divided. Today was a snow day for most of the state teachers, but tomorrow we have to walk back into the classroom, knowing that parents and coworkers can not agree. But yet we teach, and hope...

Thanks so much for the support and for spreading awareness of what's going on, Lindsey! I've got my fingers crossed for it to all work out. The scary part of it is whether or not our governor's idea is catching.... If so, it won't just be Wisconsin public workers in the news. Here's hoping what teachers and other peaceful protestors are doing is enough. Have a great week teaching, writing, and best of all mommying!!! christy

I hope they don't give up there and can make the governor back down. It will be a truly sad day for America if these creeps win.

I've been hearing such crazy stuff out of Wisconsin. How cool of you to offer Erica and Christy support.
