Enduring the insanity

For too long I have been fighting for my health, our public library and the local Catholic school. It doesn't matter how tired I get or how frustrated I am, I don't know how I can dare to stop.

Is there any way to look these kids in the eye and tell them, "Sorry, I quit?" That their future is no longer my concern and that their happiness and success is not dependent on a quality education or a community that values them as citizens.

I knew that parenting wouldn't be easy but I unquestionably assumed that my children would have access to educational options that included resources within their means and that the adults in positions of authority would NOT be so damn reluctant to do what is right.

Didn't go too well last night? Sucks. Your kids are getting a quality education by watching you fight. Don't discount that. But, yeah, it would be nice if you didn't have to fight so hard.
