1. So can you understand?
    Why I want a daughter while I’m still young
    I wanna hold her hand
    And show her some beauty
    Before all this damage is done

    thepoorinspirit-extras:

    A popular ‘Gospel’ challenge in ‘liberal’ and ‘progressive’ rhetoric is that God embraces the poor, social outcast, oppressed, etc. This is absolutely correct and needed in modern discussions of theology and its implications, and should not be limited to liberal and…

    "But there are two sides!" Yes, occupier and occupied. Oppressor and oppressed. Those implementing a system of domination and those forced to live under it.

This map should be included in every history book.

This is why I don’t like the term Native American or even like Indigenous People. It cancels the numerous different groups of people that lived here

  14. A student blows up at a teacher, drops the F-bomb. The usual approach at Lincoln – and, safe to say, at most high schools in this country – is automatic suspension. Instead, Sporleder sits the kid down and says quietly: “Wow. Are you OK? This doesn’t sound like you. What’s going on?”

    He gets even more specific: “You really looked stressed. On a scale of 1-10, where are you with your anger?” The kid was ready. Ready, man! For an anger blast to his face….”How could you do that?” “What’s wrong with you?”…and for the big boot out of school. But he was NOT ready for kindness.

    The armor-plated defenses melt like ice under a blowtorch and the words pour out: “My dad’s an alcoholic. He’s promised me things my whole life and never keeps those promises.” The waterfall of words that go deep into his home life, which is no piece of breeze, end with this sentence: “I shouldn’t have blown up at the teacher.” Whoa.

    Bam. Kids “misbehave” for actual, real, valid reasons. And have feelings.

  15. Who made heaven and earth,
    The sea and all that is in them;
    Who keeps faith forever;

    Who executes justice for the oppressed;
    Who gives food to the hungry.
    The Lord sets the prisoners free.

    The Lord opens the eyes of the blind;
    The Lord raises up those who are bowed down;
    The Lord loves the righteous;

    The Lord protects the strangers;
    He supports the fatherless and the widow,
    But He thwarts the way of the wicked.

    Psalm 146:6-9 NASB
