First Day of School

school bus

I’ve been in a bit of a Katrina-shock for the last week, so I’m grateful for any signs that normal life does go on. This morning as we passed Swift School, one of those reminders was a father walking his daughter half-way down the block, and then watching her run the rest of way to the school doors. Daughters never want their fathers to hold their hand all the way to school, and fathers will always want to make sure they get there safely.

Of course, that young lady will be joined today by “an unknown number of Gulf Coast kids“, so really I’m right back where I started.

    my wife works there .. the first day of school is said to be just as nerve-wrecking to the teachers as it is to the kids. a new year awaits with no idea as to where it will go. we drive together to school every day. as she makes her way into the building, i head up to the thorndale el platform just to look down on the swift playlot full of anxious students and teachers … as i wait for the southbound red line to take me to my cubicle where it’s business as usual.
