Well, I was met with more foolishness today at work, another opportunity to be confronted about the way things have been done in the past. Part of me wants to tell some folks to kiss my ass. I'm sure that will not get the intended result - I won't be happy and the school will not suffer as a result of what is missing.
I see today's situation as one of the challenges when advocating for marginalized groups, children who are invisible. I am also in the marginalized group. We're all already invisible, to some extent, so quitting out of frustration tells the structures you are challenging that they are effective in doing what they do - keep certain groups outside. Even though it takes more effort, the answer to marginalization is to meet the system from an angle it hasn't planned for.
The system says, "resources are limited". Response is to make something happen even out of what seems like nothing.
Inaction meet Action
Apathy meet Engagement
Upset meet Love and caring
I have great purpose for and in my life. To believe that means that at each stage, I get to exercise muscle around how my vision manifests itself in the world. It may not change my feelings about choosing to be responsible for that but I will not be deterred.
I continue to seek the support and guidance necessary to clear myself so I may be able to vision my way through these and other challenges.
It's all OPPORTUNITY to be what I say I am, the source of my vision
