filled a field along US 87 near China Grove, east of San Antonio.
The clouds conveniently mimicked the white flowers.
Below is a closer look at the prickly poppies in another field.

The deleterious effects of Critical Social Justice ideology in schools show up in more than just curricula. Real student achievement in the United States has been in decline for years, and many experts believe that a major part of what is required to get us back on track is a greater adherence to proven and measurable educational standards. Critical Social Justice, however, strips away these standards wherever it encounters them. From the elimination of advanced classes and standardized tests, to the lowering of admissions requirements for magnet schools and higher education institutions, all are justified by the goal of achieving “equity”—defined not as promoting a fair process for everyone, but as insisting on equal outcomes between racial groups of students without regard to individual performance.  


That’s a paragraph from Grayson Slover’s March 20th article “Is ‘toxic wokeness’ a greater threat than the Chinese Communist Party?” You can read the full article on the website of the Foundation Against Intolerance and Racism (FAIR).
