I just received a very nice note from Joie's teacher. Not only did she apologize for yesterday's situation, but she said that she is now educating herself more on the cause. She said that while Joie did have a hard time communicating what she was standing up for yesterday, she gave all of her class a great lesson on how great it is when American citizens stand up for what they believe in. So, I think we can all consider this a victory on Joie's part. By wearing the face paint and her purple shirt, our little advocate not only taught her school about Spirit Wear Purple Day, but tolerance as well.
