Poem: The Ripple Effect

"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Robert F. Kennedy

The music for The Ripple Effect is awesome! Ted Newman did a terrific job on the 9 songs included in the CD that comes in the book! We can't wait for you to hear them.

Note from Suzy Red: Chicken Boy was not included in The Ripple Effect because of several occurances of cursing in the text. Since students are punished for cursing in the classroom, I believe it is a double standard that encourages us to hold up award-winning literature with cursing in it as their model.
