277: Get Your Party On

28 Jun

Today was better! Much.

I met one of my favorite authors, Peter Reynolds. He hugged me when I told him I taught gifted children and his books just spoke to me. We talked about our children and our projects. I might live him more now.

Then out Ed Tech directors took us to a few parties with food, drinks and great views.

Tonight was the big EdTech Karaoke event. The badge is coveted and its a fun party, but after to meet and greets, we decided to go back to the room. This is when things got interesting.

Texas Senator, Wendy Davis, filibustered a bill to outlaw abortions for 10 hours today and we got home just in time as things got interesting. I put my earbuds in and watched the live stream on my phone as the Republicans broke rules, the crowds chanting and while history was made. It was a proud moment.

Additionally, the Supreme Court ruled today that states that have passed same sex marriage laws were not unconstitutional.

It’s a proud day to be a liberal.
