The Impact of Great Schools
When I was a school-aged child we went on a field trip to the Thomas Paine Cottage (a French expatriate and Founding Father of the new America) in my hometown of New Rochelle, NY in Westchester County. I was very impressed with the fact that Thomas Paine was an author of a hand bill called Common Sense and that through his writings he helped to shape the ideas and the destiny of a country that he wasn’t even born yet.
I learned that New Rochelle was part of a global society even back in the 1700’s and that everyone was not saying the same things about important topics. In fact many, many ideas were really exchanged. This was probably the first inspiration for my blog and desire to share ideas and news. As the old adage goes “two heads are better than one”!

MindShare is a book of original poems by W. Calvin Anderson with an introduction by the late, Ossie Davis. MindShare features poems with topics related to Black History, human interest, love, politics, rap, education, and prayer. MindShare is a tribute to the best in the American baby-boomer generation. It celebrates our appetite for life, the best that an American dream can possibly offer and a no-wooden-nickel appreciation of our past. MindShare is a must read for who think, love and want more. People who need to get perspective about the world of yesterday and the world today. If you have love or you are looking for love you will find values and reinforced sentiments and prayers to keep you on-track. We need sensible consensus. We are never alone! If you seek social reconstruction MindShare clearly is out of the box and wants America returned to its legitimate spiritual quest and protestant ethics. MindShare is a diverse and mature love poem to America itself in no shy way. You have to try on this level of poetry for size. It’s Third century.
