You Will Never Guess What I’m About To Tell You..

โ€œThis is the first two-story, first masonry structure in the Unassigned Landsโ€ (Before I get into this post – the above quote talks about the “unassigned lands.” I want to be clear that this district sits on Gรกuigรบ (Kiowa), ๐“๐’ฐ๐““๐’ฐ๐““๐’ท ๐’ผ๐“‚๐“Š๐’ป ๐“†๐’ป๐’ฟ๐’ท ๐“€๐’ฐ^๐““๐’ฐ^(Osage), Wichita, Nส‰mส‰nส‰ส‰ Sookobitส‰ (Comanche), and Kiikaapoi (Kickapoo) land.

(Wow, more on leadership coming soon I think.). Isn’t it great? Mobility is more than just โ€œtime spentโ€ getting from A to B. It has sensory, emotional, and social qualities we seldom consider or discuss. @Modacity It hit me. It came…
