Is it lip service we attribute to the touted slogan
being birthed from the womb of our new century;
a politically correct phrase in our lives and the lives
of our children:


"No child left behind"


What satisfying implications a few words like these
can foster . . .
hope,
chance,
opportunity,
education,
dignity,
integrity,
self-actualization,
confidence,
boldness,


Did we get the prescription right this time?
or will we have to re-mix the ingredients again?


I hope not
Iíll not only be watching
Iíll be working
for them
Iíll be standing in the gap
doing what I can as always
reaching . . . teaching . . . advocating . . .
however . . . whenever . . . wherever . . .


"No child left behind"


Thatís a good thing
a right thing
a sacred thing
a god-like thing


"When youíve done it unto the least ones . . . children...youíve done it unto me"


"No child left behind"


Thatís a good thing
a right thing
a sacred thing
a god-like thing
