Monday, Monday -- can't trust that day. Not like Saturday; I would trust Saturday with my life and my firstborn child. And Wednesday? Don't even get me started on THAT son of a beeyotch.
Several weeks ago, after a tremendous march on downtown Dallas, one of my little Hispanic girls told me that on May 1, "the schools will be empty." Unfortunately, this did not prove to be the case today. The little girl who made that prophecy was absent today, as were four kids in my class, and there was a spattering of absences around the school, but for the most part, it was just a normal school day.
Granted, I live in a tiny little microcosm, and worldwide events often transpire without me even knowing. So did anyone out there notice a bigger difference today? Were certain people conspicuously absent from work, from restaurants, from life? I'm not really even sure if this is just a Texas thing, or if it was a Hispanic movement across the nation. (I'm a big enough man to acknowledge my total ignorance on certain matters.)
Please let me know what you observed today, if anything. Anyway, you know how much I hate seeing that "0 comments" underneath a post.
