Do you hear the people sing? Singing the song of angry men? It is the music of a people Who will not be slaves again!
We need leap years because it takes Earth 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46 seconds to orbit the sun, causing the calendar year to become more and more out of sync with the solar year over time. If we didn’t have leap days, February 2016 would actually be July 2017. Source
*If you begin counting from the time Julius Caesar met Egyptian astronomers and created a new calendar, it would be July 15, 2017.

“1 in 3 urban youth display the symptoms of mild to severe PTSD. And when you compare that data to the military data what you find is urban youth are actually twice as likely as soldiers returning from Iraq to get PTSD.”
This presentation is crucial to educators interested in the future and empowerment of inner-city youth of color. View the entire video here.
Dr. Duncan-Andrade is a professor at San Francisco State University. He also teaches at a high school in Oakland for free and has recently collaborated w other teachers to open http://ift.tt/1pozf8h. His research is amazing and he’s woke AF. I was lucky to have him as a professor at SFSU.
He’s def life changing…
This is powerful.
This an example of the kind of privilege I grew up with and never realized. I only knew 2 kids in my high school who died, one from suicide and one from a car accident. It was big deal when a kid broke another kid’s nose. I was able to grow up not feeling traumatized because of the place I lived and not because of anything I did. Everyone deserves that and not everyone gets it.

“I’ve survived worse” should not be a thing you tell yourself to stay in a bad situation. Just because you’ve survived worse doesn’t mean you don’t deserve better.
