may your edges be full and bountiful
may your hair always stay moisturized
may your brow game strengthen with every coming day
may your knees and elbows never be ashy

black-culture: "The single biggest difference between financial success and financial failure is how well you manage your money. It’s simple: to master money, you must manage money." - T. Harv Eker My students are limited in many resources at home and at school because of the low-economic area they live in. As their teacher and role model, I want to ensure my students are on a path to being successful adults. Many of my students because of their disadvantaged backgrounds have little to no opportunities to learn about financial literacy. They spend their allowance or parents’ earnings on toys or snacks without thinking about the consequences of these small expenditures can add up over time. It is important to teach students the value of saving money early on to save for important things in the future such as a college education. The possibilities are endless when my students can use a Mac Book Air laptop to access online financial literacy activities. The students will become financial literate as they engage in games and activities that teach them about budgeting, credit/debit, and saving. I am requesting a Mac Book Air laptop to teach financial literacy in a fun 21st century way to my students. Studies have shown that students who are financially literate become financially responsible young adults regardless of income level. http://www.donorschoose.org/project/teaching-financial-literacy-in-a-21st-ce/1258104/?rf=link-siteshare-2014-07-teacher_account-teacher_1562753&challengeid=254136 Thank you so much for your support.

What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’
Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.
Did y’all know about this?
