Big Day for the Eighth-grader



The kid finally got his wish – to get a taste of what the big high school would be like. He followed a student around the school to understand the challenges awaiting him.

Even better, he shadowed a senior (!) who introduced the kid to many people and allowed him to sit in on his conversations throughout the day.

The kid was blown away at how the system of public education could be so easily subverted and ignored. I was hoping for something else, like, how many great opportunities there were to do cool stuff. I suppose “cool stuff” is in the eye of the beholder. One student impressed the kid by taking two weight lifting classes back to back. Go figure.

I’m glad the kid is thirsty for change. Some things stand the test of time.

  2. Tomorrow, be on the look for our final Dog of the Day post. This last post is going to be a special one. I'll be revisiting current shelter dogs who are looking for forever homes, like I did at the beginning--rather than the success stories I've done the past few days--and featuring one dog who is having some medical issues and needs help from the loving humans in his life.
