the 'Sip
"Fix me a cool drink of water"
He said as he stumbled through the door
And up from my slumber I sprang immediately
A glass of water for him, to pour.

From a long day's work granddad had come
I knew how tired he must have been
I felt that work as hard as his
Should have been considered pure sin.

He came on in and took a seat
Bowed his head for a short time
I can only imagine his thoughts that day
Oftentimes, I wish that they were mine.

So, do you feel why I sprang to my feet
When he requested just a cool drink
That's the least I could do for that tired 'ol man
Just as he'd asked, don't you think?

Yes, that's the least that you could do.
What a blessing it must have been,
To have a grand around like you.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
