Tell me about a time where a white child was killed and black people made a hashtag mocking their death, a Halloween costume mocking their death, or a celebration of their death in any way shape or from. NEVER!!

Black pride has never been about hating white people, but white supremacy has always been about hating black people.

Eeyore is just one of those characters that you wanna scoop up and hug forever.

One awesome thing about Eeyore is that even though he is basically clinically depressed, he still gets invited to participate in adventures and shenanigans with all of his friends. And they never expect him to pretend to feel happy, they just love him anyway, and they never leave him behind or ask him to change.

Oh

oh

And he does feel happy, though. He can be happy. He just doesn’t show it as much as the others do.
There was a whole episode about that - Piglet sees him sitting on a hilltop and thinks he’s sadder than usual, and does all he can to cheer him up. Nothing works and the next day he’s back on the hill, and Piglet apologizes because he thinks in trying to help, he just made him sad again and ”I don’t come here when I’m sad. I come up here because I’m happy.”

There’s just something about that…

Bless Eeyore. And bless his wonderful troupe of friends who love him despite his mental issues. 

I’m crying

Eeyore and Charlie Brown were two of my favorite characters as a child, which should have prepared me for what my life growing up with depression would be like…and still is!

Hi Everyone!

I will be starting as a 1st grade teacher this fall. This will be my first year as a teacher and I am super excited to meet my students and do great things with them. One vision for my classroom is to develop a love of reading in each of my students so that they can grow up to be strong readers, writers, speakers, and critical thinkers. This will require a large variety of books so that they can learn to pick books that are the right fit for them. I would like to get my classroom started with a wide assortment of books as well and supplies so that they can engage with these books in a variety of ways - learning to spell, learning to write narratives similar to the ones they read, and expressing themselves through words and pictures. Any small donation can be a huge contribution to a book! Every single donation made will be used to directly benefit my students through books and supplies.  Thank you so much for your interest in children’s literacy!

Boundless thanks to those of you who have already donated! I can’t wait to meet my kids and go on this wonderful learning adventure with them. 

I’m going to start making purchases for books! Thanks all for your help, please continue to spread the word! If you would rather donate a book or supplies directly, please let me know! Thank you so much for being wonderful!
