In honor of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

We cooked--all thirteen of us, teachers and students at State High donned aprons, chopped onions, sweated off the mirepoix while we first-hand experienced the meaning of mis en place.  We created over 150 meals for 8 group homes of people with cognitive disabilities (and their devoted staff) who live among us in our community.  It was rather amazing....really...truly.

"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."
~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
