Derrick Rose survived Chicago as a kid, and is now the city's most recognizable athlete. So when he talks (err, tweets) about the Chicago teachers' strike and its impact on the children of the city, it's worth listening to. Via NBC Chicago, his tweets are after the jump.
I'm sitting here just thinking how sad it is that my city got to go through this. I love my city and everyone in it even my haters!— Derrick Rose (@drose) September 12, 2012
I don't like that fact that OUR kids are not in school and that's the only thing we have to SAVE these kids.— Derrick Rose (@drose) September 12, 2012
I pray everyday for US for real. I know I shouldn't be saying this because I hoop and it's not my lane but I feel like ppl should hear this.— Derrick Rose (@drose) September 12, 2012
Oh, it's your lane, D-Rose. Own it.
