Helen Gym is a model parent for all those who hate the status quo.

Please read this article about her. I hope you will be inspired by her example.

She lives in a city (Philadelphia) and a state (Pennsylvania) where the politicians have written off the children. They don’t matter to Mayor Nutter and Governor Corbett. They have written off the schools and children of Philadelphia.

But these children matter to Helen Gym.

She is fearless. She is well-informed.

She speaks truth to power.

If every city had a Helen Gym, this nation would get turned around. And soon.

She is definitely on the honor roll of this blog.

And while I don’t use the four-letter word that she used in the last line of the article, I can understand why she responded as she did. I would think it even if I would bite my tongue and not say it.
