It seems inconsequential…my daughter needs brown sugar for her recipe and rushed out to get it.
What isn’t so obvious is that she needs it for an on-line school assignment that starts at a set time and will be broadcast to her teacher and peers. At this moment I am thankful to have the time and ability to rush out and get her what she needs so she’s in compliance with her school work.
But what if I weren’t here?
What if I was like the millions of people whose work or career or necessity takes them away from the home-school everyday and entrust their younglings to be accountable for all the hiccups that come in current education?
How do I convey to my children the relative privilege they enjoy because of how their family’s economy is structured?
Am I more patient with the tribulations of other families who, in spite of wanting to succeed, struggle daily with the reengineering of how we are teaching?
All from a $2.99 bag of brown sugar.
I do not fear the heavens for they are amoral. Up there we are all truly equally insignificant. Looking up I am engulfed only in wonder and awe.
In the last 10 or so years of his life we hardly spoke a word towards one another.
He was a stubborn old man and I was a petty young one.
The sad thing that I think about today is how I have no clue if he ever had the time to enjoy a Sunday cup of coffee like I so often do.

Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else, for each one should carry his own load.
