Viva la revolución!

Viva la revolución!

Dear Educators,

Change might be constant, but it can also be intense and painful. Violence, pain, and death are often intrinsic to massive societal change. We have seen this play out in 2020. Tension, friction, and times of confusion and discomfort are inevitable. Mid-October 1781 was a time of such tension and friction as the Battle of Yorktown, the final, major battle of the American Revolution came to an end. The frustration over the situation in the country, and a passionate desire for change, fueled their actions much as similar forces are driving our citizens today. The outcome of the impact of COVID-19, the civil rights fight, Supreme Court nomination, and election will likely be a history article for the generations to come. For us, we can only continue to press on through this turbulent time, moving towards victory for all.
