"If I should have a daughter..." and spoken word poetry

Watching this video would be one of the best investments of your time today:


This immediately became one of my favorite TED talks before it was even over.

The poem "B" at the beginning has me wanting to get back home to hug on Baylee and Jaxon. "10 things I know to be true," "10 things I should have learned by now," and everything she communicates around them has me putting aspects of my teaching and leadership back under a microscope. The imagery she crafts in "Hiroshima" make a word that I needed to hear today. 

You need to hear it to.

Watch. This. Video!
