Class Agenda #13 – Continuing with Word Dynamo

Opening Circle-
“There were people who went to sleep last night,
poor and rich and white and black,
but they will never wake again.

And those dead folks would give anything at all
for just five minutes of this weather
or ten minutes of plowing.

So you watch yourself about complaining.

What you’re supposed to do
when you don’t like a thing is change it.
If you can’t change it,
change the way you think about it.”
― Maya Angelou

    Superb site you have here but I was wanting to know if
    you knew of any discussion boards that cover
    the same topics discussed here? I’d really like to
    be a part of online community where I can get opinions
    from other experienced individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!
