Faith & Social Justice: In the spirit of Richard Overton and the 17th C. Levellers

I’m a Proud Papa!

Just a personal note bragging on my daughters.  On Monday, my youngest, Miriam, who is in 4th Grade, led her elementary school academic quick recall team to TWO victories over a rival school.  Way to go, Miriam!

Now, my eldest, Molly, is finishing Middle School. She was just accepted into the International Baccalaureate program at a local magnet high school.  This is beyond normal “Advanced Placement” programs. It uses an international curriculum and there are only about 100 high schools across the USA which participate in this international curriculum opportunity. Completing it is worth a year of college/university credit when she graduates and increases greatly her chances of getting into nearly any university she wants. (She already has a 4.0 gpa in the Advanced Placement program at her Middle School and, this Spring, is going with her Spanish and French clubs on a trip to France and Spain for two weeks–with money she mostly earned on her own all of last year.) Molly wants to major in international studies and maybe study law–with an eye on working for the United Nations in the future.

Are these daughters to make a papa proud or what?
