Taking a Stand…

Dr. Don Newbury

A Cup of Joe...

By Joe Gonzales 

Since the beginning of this school year, both Emma and Clarissa have been asking me to have lunch with them at school.

I haven’t had the chance to have lunch with them, because I usually had something else going on. But this day, I pushed that all to the side and made time.

Although, I’m sure she could’ve eaten an entire medium pizza herself if I let her.
