Three hundred and twenty nine days in the project #CriticalThinking in 365 concepts

Week 47 is complete. 

Exactly one year ago, before we started this project, I was praising our little neighborhood for its diversity and inherent cross-cultural creative and innovative spirit that we find everywhere and that we nurture in our children, and was praising the Omaha Public Schools for their work with us on building the community soul into our new elementary school that opened last August, of 2019. 

Little did we know then that by October last year, three months ago, we would start arguing with OPS to keep the community center open and certainly to not sell it to developers if it can stay as a place to help teach children how to think and learn better, and play and grow smarter and more entrepreneurial that way. 

We are optimistic that in this place the legacy of Warren and Charlie, and of Alan Heeger too, will not be forgotten.
