19 days To The Reckoning Of A Failed Presidency

October 19, 2020 216,904 COVID-19 Deaths 
  Dear, "I'm not responsible" President Trump, the people need a real president. A president who is willing to take full responsibility for our nation's ups and downs. History points to a real President who understood presidential responsibility. President Harry Truman in his 1953 farewell address left a message to every future president. A message your mindset can't understand or accept.

" The President—whoever he is—has to decide. He can't pass the buck to anybody. No one else can do the deciding for him. That's his job." ~Harry Truman

President Truman kept a sign on his desk in the White House, "The Busk Stops Here". In the past 10 months 216,904 Americans have died from COVID on your watch, and all you have it "live with it". Perhaps the appropriate sign for you is "Blame Everyone Else." You have told the American people over 20,000 lies, so many lies that the press has stopped counting.

Trust me, historians will label you as the worst president ever. Your swamp of Lies, Deceit, Racism, Robber Barron lover, Tax Cheat, and the president who failed to protect the American people. Your portrait shall hang in the darkest cover of the basement in the White House, and never see the light of day.

In 19 days, the people will vote our blame everyone else president.

Is this really what our children imagine when they hear us talking about going back to school?

Just stay seated ~Dr. Jesse P. Turner

Keep your mask on,
Keep your distance,
Just say seated.

Shaking hands,
High fives,
Sharing pencils,
Just stay seated.

You cannot go to:
The library,
The gym,
The cafeteria,
Just say seated.

You cannot:
Sit next to someone on the bus,
Take your mask off,
Jump rope together,
Play basketball,
Just stay seated.

Stay seated,
Stay seated,
Stay seated!

What Every School Faces This Fall

Like my brother, Bronx Principal Luis Torres, I am hurting tonight. I can't imagine how Principal Torres will handle the NYC decision when it comes. Luis has my love and support in whatever comes his way. Trust me whatever it is he will do it well.
But, today it hit home here for me. I am the CCSU Literacy Center Director. I have decided our Fall Literacy Program must be an online program. I sent my decision to our Department Chair on Monday. She supports it. It is not what any of us wants, but it is what is needed.
It is not what we want, but this is the only CDC COVID-19 Risk-Free level. A virtual program is safest. I am facing the biggest challenge of my career, creating an engaging, exciting, and worthy online Literacy Center Program for our children, parents, and teachers.
I just could not imagine a program of children and teachers separated by plexiglass, wearing masks, with sanitizing stations, and no real way to clean our social places, our common walkways. The deal-breaker: to ask young children and teachers who may be wearing masks all day long to come to our afterschool program to wear them again is beyond me. We always have some teachers with compromised immune systems, and some children as well.
I have requested that our Literacy Center be the hub of the program. I would run the program in Zoom mode alone online from the Literacy Center using multiple screens with daily zoom community meetings for children and teachers. Hoping they allow this, but not sure. Something tells me we still need to sense a brick and mortar place. I will find out. At 65, I am going to find out many things. At 65, I have nearly 40 of experience to make it work. 65 like 25 remains an embrace it moment, Mr. Turner.
Like Alexander Hamilton, I am not throwing away my shot! I am planning on a Fall program rich in empathy, love, and amazing because that is all I know how to do.
Need prayers, love, and good vibes tonight,
Dr. Jesse P. Turner
CCSU Literacy Center Director
