At last, the first day of school in Seattle, Thursday September 17 2015. The Seattle teachers strike was “settled”. In the end, the strike delayed the opening of the schools by only a week. But what a disruptive week for almost everyone in the community. Anticipation deferred. Rearrangements galore. Etc. But when the first day became a reality,it proved to be a very heart warming and exciting day.
