As an American living overseas, I often think about the countless privileges we have as Americans.

But today, my heart breaks for my country.

I can't stop thinking about what I would have said on Monday morning to my class if I was still a teacher. What are you saying?

I'm also rattling my mind thinking about how we can have this dialogue about race, class and justice at a global level.

Sending lots of hugs and love to all of the families of black boys in the world, including the ones I used to work with in DC, and remembering some wise words: "There is a higher court than courts of justice and that is the court of conscience. It supersedes all other courts." -- Mahatma Gandhi
