Do you hear the people sing?

The more I teach my students about history, the more I realize that we as humans keep repeating past mistakes. The power of Les Miserables and the musical Les Miz is that it speaks to us quite eloquently about the need for justice and right in our world. "Do you hear the people sing?" seems an apt rallying cry for this election.

Mr. Claudon, I cry so much haha. Most recently I cried after seeing Marley and Me (have you seen it, it is really good but SO SAD) and at the end of The Perks of Being a Wallflower which a lot of people love, but I personally would not recommend it. I pretty much cry at everything... haha not good.
