I know videos can be tedious to watch. I often start watching a video someone's posted on facebook or a blog, and then skip to the next thing after about 30 seconds (my attention span is that of a flea's).
But as a person who teaches kids of incarcerated parents, I find this video so moving. It made me get teary toward the end and my legs got goosebumps! Most of my students are all too familiar with what this guy is saying in his brilliant & haunting poem.
Not to be preachy, but there are 2.4 million children in this country with a parent who is incarcerated. If we don't intervene/step up/embrace them, it's all too clear that they're gonna slip through the cracks.
