Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

And school started again today!!!

It was fun, I guess.  It was school.

But hey, education!

So now Jack’s going to school, and I’m going to school, and Beth’s going to school… everyone’s going to school!!!

Oh I forgot to mention that yesterday was Martin Luther King day!!!

Well, truth be told, I don’t know a lot about Martin Luther King.  Sabby explained it a little bit, like she did last year.  She explained that back then there were a lot of people who wanted black people to be separate from white people, and he didn’t like that, so… he fixed it!  And they killed him for it.  Aww.

Sabby says he’d be so angry at the way people are trying to separate themselves again.  Maybe she’s right.

He said something like, “I have a dream that one day my four children will be judged not by the color of their skin, but the content of their character.”  Me too!  I mean, I’m half asian.  Remember on Friday how that lady tried to say I wasn’t Sabby’s daughter because I’m asian and she’s not?  How rude!  But I think I have an okay character!  Sabby says I’m a little gullible, but I’m nice!!! And Sabby’s nice too!!!  And so is Dave!!!  And Beth and… well, David too, okay.  All of us are nice!  And I’m half-Japanese, and Sabby’s black, and Dave’s white, and Beth and David are half-black half-white… oh, and Liz and Jack and Grace and their families are Chinese too!!!  (Bet you forgot that!) And Emiko is Japanese and Bill is white and Maria and Diana are hispanic…  we’re all sorts of different colors and cultures… and we still all love each other!

Isn’t that what Martin Luther King wanted for all of us?

Hmm, about the only thing we’re missing is middle east!  But Sabby says Jesus is middle eastern, so we got that covered too!  Hahaha!!!

Marie represents dog, and Cat represents cat…  we’ve got species too!!!  Hahaha!!!

Oh and on twitter… there’s lots of Japanese people who post pictures of hamsters!  Hamsters sleeping!  Hamsters eating!! Hamsters on their wheel!  Hamsters looking pensive (well, as pensive as hamsters can be).  Hammies all over the place!!!

It’s cute!

So we’ve got hamsters that aren’t judged by the color of their fur, but the content of their… ummm… character.  What kind of character do hamsters have anyway?  Aww.  Now I want a hamster.  Hahaha!!!

Okay!  Good night to my extremely diverse and yet very peaceful and happy readers!!!

Love you all!!! ❤
