Running From Empty Shoes
Educating Our Community
"To save man from the morass of propaganda, in my opinion, is one of the chief aims of education. Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction....
The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. But education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr., The Purpose of Education
Identifying With You Through My Experiences
"You can't relate to a superhero, to a superman, but you can identify with a real man who in times of crisis draws forth some extraordinary quality from within himself and triumphs but only after a struggle." ~Timothy Dalton

what is running from empty shoes?
Running From Empty Shoes means you are running towards your dreams, goals, and aspirations and you are leaving rugged worn out perceptions (by people) or lifestyles that hinder your growth far behind you. For some, Running From Empty Shoes could be letting go of an addiction and running towards sobriety; leaving an abusive relationship behind and running toward self-love and healing. It could be running towards alternative or supplementary learning. Running is often connoted as a negative action or verb, as if we’re escaping problems we need to accept and attend to in the present. Running From Empty Shoes turns “running” into constructive, encouraging, and progressive actions—running successively towards worthy things, abandoning obstructive patterns, leaving them in the dust.
The Supreme Court of the United States
is the highest court in the United States of America. Because of this, the Court leads the Judicial Branch of the United States Federal Government. It is the only U.S. court established by the United States Constitution, and its decisions are supposed to be followed by all other courts in the United States. The Court meets in its own building in Washington, D.C. However, until 1935, the Supreme Court met in the United States Capitol.
