It would mean a great deal to me if anyone who reads this blog would read this account of a terrifying moment at the Iowa caucuses this week. This piece is not about politics, it's not about the candidates. It is, purely and urgently, about fear. And fear has its place at this blog. And I want people to understand why that is.
Why it must be.
And also to see the other thread ... which is perhaps the most perfect testimony of what it means to be a teacher that I have ever read.
The affirmation. The shining, life-affirming reasons for gratitude.
