Today’s Quote

I believe it was Jefferson who said something along the lines of a person who acts and speaks rightly constitutes a majority. Margaret Mead spoke of the power of small groups to make changes. I wonder if we have lost some of this in the early 21st Century? I hope not.

Soul Gatherings

clouds V

There comes a time when one must take a position
that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular,
but he must take it because
conscience tells him it is right.

~ Martin Luther King Jr. ~

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  4. Thanks for the wonderful King quote. I try to follow my conscience, and can say that it isn’t always popular or politic. But I stick to what I believe is right.

  5. Takes great strength to do so, Ivon; though if we do not, who do we lose, but ourselves.
