Today second period, third period, fourth period, and fifth period read A Wreath for Emmett Till in class. Two classes even got to read it outside under the pine trees–until Mrs. Culver’s allergies got the better of her…We discussed the combination of history, English, art, and current events that the book wove together. Not quite an uplifting story, but a reminder from the past that we should never allow something like that to happen again.
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”–George Santayana
