I have said the Pledge of Allegiance twice today. Once in Mimbres at the Evergreen Garden Society Meeting and once in Cliff at the school board meeting. It's a little bit of overkill.

There was a high school freshman there reciting poetry he's written and oh my god--he hit every stereotype of Cliff school I could think of. I mean, he got there up in his jeans and his denim shirt, and (I didn't actually see them but I imagine boots) he stuck his thumbs in his belt, cupping the belt buckle, and he spoke with a cowboy sort of drawl as he recite a poem about his brother at the rodeo. He started writing 'cause his dad listened to country all the time and he just wanted to see if he couldn't write down his own stories. It was adorable. And good--very good poetry and his mom was there advocating for the school to bring drama back to the high school and he was there partly because he'd there started a writing club. It was awesome.
