When the Whole World is Sick…

What do I tell my 3rd graders this time




I am sick and tired of trying to turn tragedies into teachable moments.

Tomorrow I think I’ll sing with my students. It’s a tune I learned from Jews for Racial & Economic Justice, but I’m not sure of its source:

When the whole world is sick

Can’t no one be well

But I dreamt we were all beautiful and strong.

Not sure what else to say or do.
