This morning, Jeanine and I were treated to a fourth grade presentation on the civil rights movement in the southeast region of the country. It was a timeline of PowerPoint presentations, from slavery to the civil rights movement.
Our son Zachary presented the book he read with a classmate. Excellent work.
What struck me though, was the two parents that came up to me and mentioned that Zachary had told their son that he was going to be silent one day at school. That it was a protest.
I was surprised. We had talked about the Day of Silence and what it was for over dinner the other night. Jeanine is organizing the students at Berklee who want to participate.
Zachary, obviously, soaked it in.
