The discussions on feminism and capitalism have been intense and somewhat discouraging (if you’re following the feminist blogs, you know where to look). So I need good news, and am thankful for this.
I shared a letter earlier this week from a young Filipina teacher who was teaching music theory and guitar performance to students from a lower-income community in the Philippines. Just a small problem, they could not afford guitars.
Problem solved. People responded to her internet plea (unlike the company that promised to donate instruments. hmph). The students have their guitars! Maybe there’s hope for all of us.
Did you see the students’ faces? I could almost hear the beautiful music.
