I have been recently made aware that my Global Affairs teacher is cool with Clayton Vila.
I live in Rhode Island and am a senior in high school. As many of you may know, Clayton grew up on Block Island right off the coast of RI.
I was wearing a Block Island T-Shirt to class when I was complimented by my teacher. He then told me how he loves BI and lived there for 5 years. Instinctively my friend @viveiros asked if he knew Clayton, jokingly. The teacher then went on explaining how he used to hang out with him, and that his family owned like half the island, I find this so cool. He related the conversation to the class by telling Clayton's liberal point of views including his hippy persona. This got my attention in the class, and I now respect my teacher so much more.
Today he asked if I would like to meet him, and that he has his number. Even if it doesn't end up happening, I'm stoked right now.
If anyone has any questions I might have the opportunity to get them answered.
