#resiliencechat Tidbit: Martin King, Jr.'s birth name was Michael, not Martin.
His father, traveled to Germany and became inspired by the Protestant Reformation leader Martin Luther. As a result, King Sr. changed his own name as well as that of his 5-year-old son.
A2: not sure it's culturally responsive or humanly, but I emphasize choose kindness and accountability daily.
You are the person that can make change. Start with the little changes like accountability for you and how you treat others. #resiliencechat
A2. I have had the opportunity to hear two excellent speakers on the topic of Cultural Diversity and Cultural Competency. Both from Michigan.
Dr. Jay Marks https://t.co/WlLZkXcuzk
and Huda Essa. @culturelinksllc
Learned some great things from both speakers! #resiliencechat
A3: My theory is this: We are all human. Love is love. We all have a right to be heard, but we also have to listen. We all need to treat each other with respect and kindness. Stop the madness. Stand up even if it means standing alone. ❤ #resiliencechat
A2) You’ll often find me and my wife and kids marching on capitols, chanting at rallies, or writing/calling politicians. All for causes that don’t directly benefit us as straight white people. We’re anti-injustice, no matter the victim we seek to assist. #resiliencechat
A3) Adequate funding for starters! And a frank discussion on whether homework should be a necessary/graded component of learning. Also, I’d like schools to have on-site dentists and therapists with free services for kids. Maybe weekend food boxes to take home... #resiliencechat
