Your Thoughts, Six Words, Please Send

I recently heard Michele Norris from NPR talk about her new memoir, The Grace of Silence and her poetic project The Race Card.  For the The Race Card project, she started with actual post cards asking for ideas about race using only 6 words.  The profound, funny, poignant, and moving responses are amazing to read. 

Our middle school language arts classes are reading Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry and they might try their hands at Michele's challenge.  Favorites of mine: Our Untold Stories Keep Us Separate - and -   Start with kids, and MIX well.  What are yours?
