"Why am I a radical? Because in order to live up to our promise as a nation, we cannot rest until we provide a quality education for all our children. If America is truly going to be the land of equal opportunity, we have to provide that opportunity to every single child, regardless of where they live, what color they are, and what their parents do...
"Right now, our public school system isn't working for every child. It isn't working for our economy. And it isn't working for our democracy. As a result... cycles of poverty repeat and... a generation of children... too often children of color... is being denied its civil rights to a high-quality education."
– Excerpted from Chapter Twelve (pgs. 268-269)

No matter what plan you've tried, losing weight is not all that easy. A smoothie – if it's prepared the right way – can be a big boost.
This week, I'm going to share with you some of my world-famous smoothie recipes that have helped many in their quests to feel better and return to that youthful look.
These smoothies are fruit rich and blended with water instead of yogurt and milk. Convenient, ultra-fast and energizing, they can be used as a meal replacement. Choose your fruits carefully, because our bodies are made differently.

Komona's (Rachel Mwanza) life was irreversibly altered at the tender age of 12 when rebel forces led by the Great Tiger (Mizinga Mwinga) rampaged through her tiny African village. The unfortunate girl was forced at gunpoint to kill her own parents (Starlette Mathata and Alex Herabo) before being abducted and brainwashed into joining the cause.
Deep in the jungle, she was befriended by other kids orphaned by the conflict before being trained to use a weapon against government soldiers. However, more valuable than marksmanship, Komona developed an uncanny knack for sensing enemy positions, a skill which proved handy during encounters with deadly snipers and machine gun nests.
