summer break's got me spraypainting the word "jackass" onto all over my skin, while i'm taking it easy in so cal, the sasc family is bending their backs like hyperboles for the 2004 summer institute. an all-expense paid educational experience on heritage, culture, community building and social change. the family has been working on this for almost a whole year and it's coming right up in two weeks. i'd give my bones and sweat glands to this program but i have summer school in the way. 24 students are coming up for this, including my younger brother. thank you for making this happen.
