On top of the world, I had some radioactive night visions, it was time to confront my demons.
I first tried to get back to my roots, I bet my life on it but the gold was just smoke and mirrors and I ended up lost in the unknown. So I figured I had to evolve, to do whatever it took. I became a believer and felt the thunder, and now I'm walking the wire, imagining dragons.
First things first I'm a say all the words inside my head I'm fired up and tired of the way that things have been up ooh-oh the way that things have been up ooh-oh. Second things second don't you tell me what to think that i could be I'm the one at the sail I'm the master of my sea ooh-oh the master of my sea ooh-oh. I was broken from a young age taking my soak in through masses writing my poems for the few that looking me tooking shooking me feeling me singing from heartache from the pain speaking my message through the veins and the beauty through the... Pain! you make me a you make me a believer believer Pain Pain! you break me down you build me up believer believer Pain! I let the bullets fly oh let them rain my love my life my drive it came from... Pain! you make me a you make me a believer believer Third things third send a prayer to the ones up above all the hate that you send turns your spirit to a dove a ooh-oh your spirit up above ooh-oh i was broken from the veins Feelin' like ashes to the ground Hopin' my feelings..

I let the bullets fly oh let them rain my love my life my drive it came from Pain! you make me a you make me a believer believer Last things last at the grace of the fire and the flames your the face of the the future the blood in my veins ooh-oh the blood in my veins ooh-oh
I missed the last part cuz I'm tired I'm only 7 so some parts might be wrong if they are Sorry i just did the best i could
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
