When you feel like a failure//when you feel like your failing//when it’s night.
"High-income families are increasingly focusing their resources — their money, time and knowledge of what it takes to be successful in school — on their children’s cognitive development and educational success. They are doing this because educational success is much more important than it used to be, even for the rich."

Tyree Callahan has recycled (or upcycled, perhaps) a classic 1937 Underwood typewriter by replacing letters with sponges soaked across the spectrum with bright yellows, reds, blues and combinations thereof.
I want to use this and write a story with it and see what picture comes out.
This is amazing.
While the national average for those with food insecurity in their homes is 14.5 percent, Native people, Black people and Latino people are hit the hardest.
Frustratingly enough, (but not at all surprising) I was able to find several pieces of information on white, Black, Latin@ and Asian food disparities. Missing from almost every article, chart and graph was Native people. This is particularly disheartening because no matter what year I compared, the numbers for Native people’s food insecurity wasn’t just double the national average, it is double that of Black and Latin@ people.
In every racial group, it is the children who are hit the hardest. The above graphic from 2010, shows the national food insecurity rates and then the national child food insecurity rates. What many fail to realize is that children are paying the price first and foremost. The problem is, so many see this as someone else’s issue. Realistically, hell-even selfishly, we should remember how much food insecurity affects the mental, emotional and physical health of children. How it affects childhood education. How it so closely correlates to what their futures hold. Which means, what our country’s future holds. Feeding a hungry child today could stop us from having to pay an even bigger price tomorrow.
Feeding America is a great place to go if you need food, if you want to volunteer or if you want to donate. Do what you can, start in your own back yard and then expand it to the world.
Do it for selfish reasons. The person you help feed today, might be the person who heals your pain tomorrow.
Know your fight is not with them
Yours is with your time here
Dream your dreams but don’t pretend
Make friends with what you are
QUOTE: Most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be.
I agree with this quote because its telling me if you set your mind to it you can be very happy as a lion eating a buffalo. Also I agree with this quote because it say if you set your mind to it you do it you can be it you can make so if you follow your dreams you can do it all by yourself. Without anybodys help so if it was up to me I would very much follow my dreams and be as happy as I can.
