This is a picture of my very first class. They were a group of terrific first graders who taught me a about hope, love, and the power of high expectations. Those of you who know our story, know this is also the class that brought James to us.
Today, I am grateful for the lessons of children, for the work of my grandmother (and other civil rights activists), for the way warmth matters in a classroom, and for the way that love made us a family.
In the fitting words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
With hope, KFW
