A Collective Hurt.
Christina Marie Martinez

Thank you for this. I’m also a teacher in the area, and when I saw the comments on the local newspaper’s site, I was deeply saddened. Those kids could have been my students, and they were reduced by so many into a punchline about “the hood.” We need to remember our humanity.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
