Walking is also like taking a small poll on the pulse of voters regarding Proposition 123. So far, I'll be surprised if it does well with Democrats within TUSD, as most people that I speak with feel pretty strongly that it is not as it appears. They don't trust the State of Arizona to do the right thing by our kids and our students and teachers.
Amid a day of looking for items on our scavenger hunt and finding sculptures and other examples of great whimsy in people's yards, we also encountered some serious stories. My favorite was about the house that, at one time, was owned by a church that still sits nearby. When the church invited Martin Luther King Jr. to come speak, they were unable to find a hotel in Tucson that would house a black man...so he stayed at the house. If you were thinking that our district, and our town, and our state's desegregation issues are recent, transitory, and of little importance, I ask you to remember that story!
