Not in my best form, today. Went to bed early, tired and depressed. Worried that attendance is down at my ESL class. Mad at myself for not keeping up with my Arabic and Irish. Feeling guilty that I don't play enough with, don't read enough to my children.

Have been mulling over the news that the neighbouring county has three separate proms, one for "Whites," one for "Blacks," and one for "Hispanics." I use quotation marks as a sign of my disgust with the inadequacy of these labels. A student tried to buy tickets to the White prom, but was refused with the remark that Hispanics were not allowed to attend the White prom. And our tax dollars go to this school?
