"Impeachment exposed Trump’s corruption, but the confluence of a pandemic, a financial crisis and the stoking of societal divisions has roused the soul of the American people,"  @Alexander S. Vindman writes in an op-ed. https://wapo.st/39KzW5s

Though I am not fond of Tik Tok, I must say that only in America would the government band Tik Tok, before semi-automatic rifles. This is the country we live in and as a young person, I fear for the future.

Well, I quit my teaching job today. It wasn’t easy. I’ve been doing this for ten years. But I was tired. Tired of negotiating my values and my humanity. Tired of saying yes when I really wanted to say no. Tired of smiling and nodding when I wanted to shake my head.

Rest well John Lewis. My favorite. You were the Congress. You have taught me, along with many others to persevere, do good, and stand up for what is right. I will miss you. Your work will continue and we shall overcome. "Every scar and bruise was a badge of honor." #ripjohnlewis 4

I for one don’t care whether the president or his congressional enablers put out disingenuous pablum about John Lewis. Pass and sign a voting rights bill. Name it after him. And then we can talk. Actions not empty words. Lewis always led from the front.

One of the best parts of being a teacher is being constantly inspired by your students. Check out my podcast that my summer workshops students have inspired me to create and stay tuned for their upcoming podcasts! https://anchor.fm/natasha723/episodes/6-Feet-Together-egocra

Here...here is why teachers are scared.

News of Donald Trump commuting Roger Stone's sentence proves what was obvious since the beginning. The pledge to "drain the swamp" was about as real as Trump University. Many will conclude Stone had a lot to say to implicate Trump, didn't say it, and was rewarded accordingly.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman is the definition of American patriotism. Those who call themselves patriots and smear him are serving only their crass political needs and certainly not the country.

So proud of my summer workshop students and their original poetry based off Leslie Dwight's "What if 2020 isn't cancelled?" Check our their poems here!  #Chronicling2020 https://sites.google.com/view/mschadhaenglish/chronicling-2020

This should not have happened. Thank you for your service to our country.

Today I officially requested retirement from the US Army, an organization I love. My family and I look forward to the next chapter of our lives.

Wake up America. What’s happening across the country isn’t a second wave. It’s still the first wave.

Yesterday the US hit a record high for new COVID cases. WEAR A MASK.

In 2016, Pres. Trump claimed voter fraud to explain his loss in the popular vote. It was a lie. Now, with horrible polling, he's trying to delegitimize the vote - through suppression and more lies about voting by mail. This is a big story. Put all his allies on the record.

We can’t afford to lose this expertise, but you can hardly blame them for resigning in the face of death threats.  #MakeAmericaHateAgain https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/22/us/health-officials-threats-coronavirus/index.html

We had a lot of fun researching and creating it! Please check it out and start your own change!

For too long, LGBTQ educators and students entering the workforce have been forced into the closet or been forced out. Today, we celebrate a step toward liberation and stand alongside LGBTQ educators and students who make schools better, just as they are. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/dominicholden/lgbtq-workplaces-supreme-court-ruling-discrimination

“Patriotism means to stand by the country not the president.” ~Theodore Roosevelt — This applies for all parties!!

Medgar Evers was murdered on this date in 1963, a moment that will forever be seared in my memory. I had reported on him, knew him, liked him a great deal. I remember arriving at his house, his newly widowed wife and children inside. Please know his story.
