Day 13 of High School in Five Months, fact versus opinion, Adulting, and how far have we really sailed?

Adulting includes distinguishing fact from opinion.  Doesn’t that including distinguishing discovery from appropriation, and deciding in what ratio or proportion those two may or may not collide?  Every citizen and any freedom movement must take up those questions, no?

(Day 1Day 5)

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
(free copies at:…)
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.

  1. Interesting choice of words. Once we see or experience something, we own the memory, the experience and the feelings pertained to it,but we do not have to own the object (except maybe air, food/drink, and the space we occupy). Although people might make the argument about only renting beer. 🙂

    1. Ugh, glad I don’t like beer!
      I’m not sure I understand your meaning when you say “we own the memory…”

      -do you mean that we keep it as a personal and thus subjective, while the “object” remains unchanged, or am I misunderstanding you (either way, I still do not quite understand)?

        1. Sorry if I’m being particularly thick today: lack of sleep from trains, smells, and thumping neighbors overhead.

          Could you give an example or two, please?


      1. You and I have both been to the Naval Academy
        I will never be a Midshipman there while you were. You have memories and hopefully friends, pictures, and maybe Midshipman momentos that I don’t
        I have been to a wedding of two navel officers ,one an alumni. I’ve been to a library conference there and had a librarian’s tour of the library and the Naval Institute. You’ve used the library ad a student and I have not. Same place totally different experiences, pictures, memories, and momento
        Different purposes, people, and take aways.
