Small but Impactful

Quick updates I wanted to share…

  1. In one of my 9th graders we were reviewing the Martin Luther King Jr. speech and the teacher asked me “Dwayne what fountain would Japanese people drink from? Whites or coloured?”. I thought that was pretty funny. I had no idea what to answer but considering most of the Japanese people went or were sent home after World War II I answered “the coloured one”.
  2. On an island of 6 thousand people a 14 year old Japanese boy stood up and applauded the MLK I have a Dream speech, before being told to sit down by his classmates. It was entirely sweet, funny and awkward.
