I wanted to piggy-back on JD Kings piece he did for Patrick Flynn at Rethinking Schools but just didn't have enough time. Although Patrick and I have been corresponding for probably the last year after meeting him when he received the Gangle Award from the Society, this was the first job I did with him and it was truly a wonderful and quick experience.
In general...the article was about taking 'pain' from one's experiences and turn it into power and creativity. The article features a particular poet, Daniel Beaty, which I was able to get a YouTube video of the poem cited in the article.
