Sadly far too often children become who we assume they are

Bird Droppings March 17, 2012

Sadly far too often children will become who we assume they are

“We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.” Stacia Tauscher

So often I watch teachers treating students simply as things in the class room, items to be dealt with when needed and or if needed. Looking at a semester end test score yet to be, a number in an electronic grade book, or a number to be attained through the curriculum map and…

Actions speak so much louder than words

Look at children. Of course they may quarrel, but generally speaking they do not harbor ill feelings as much or as long as adults do. Most adults have the advantage of education over children, but what is the use of an education if they show a big smile while hiding negative feelings deep inside? Children don’t usually act in such a manner. If they feel angry with someone, they express it, and then it is…

When leaving behind and moving beyond a piece is always left

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter into another!” Gail Sheehy, American journalist, author

Yesterday we were informed our current principal was going to the county office a significant advancement for him and a great loss for us. As I look around my room and wonder…

The Butterfly Clan in Native American Astrology

By Jeanine Byers Hoag

Native American Spirituality

If you were born during one of the date ranges listed below, you are part of the butterfly clan.

In Native American spirituality, humans and animals are considered to be part of one big family. Our animal companions are brothers and sisters in spirit and they offer us support and help in developing the strengths we need and learning the lessons we are here to learn.

Lepidoptera in the Mythology of Native Americans

by Ron Cherry E.R.E.C.,

Because of the beauty, power of flight, and complete metamorphosis found in butterflies an moths, these insects frequently are found in Native American myths. In an early article, Grinnell called attention to the belief held by the Blackfeet that dreams are brought to us in sleep by a…

In this day and age, it's hard to believe that animals are imprisoned for the sake of human entertainment. Animals at zoos are housed in cramped, barren cages that can't compare to their natural habitats, causing many of the animals to exhibit neurotic behavior. Please boycott zoos and sign PETA's pledge today!…

Thinking about Dr. Carl G. Jung and Billy Jack

“If there is anything we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves.” Carl G. Jung

Over the years I have seen this with myself, so often those attributes we see and are upset with we too have within ourselves. Yesterday I got mad at a student who is very self-centered and focused almost entirely on himself. I…

Examine carefully the threads of life

“Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it.

Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself." Chief Seattle, 1854

When I walk out into the darkness of a morning to give thanks for my day previous and for all to come this day I am always amazed at how I see something new even in the darkness. I was standing listening to the spring peepers chirping away in the small drainage ditch…

A difficult journey

“Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.” Henry Van Dyke

I was visiting with my mother Monday evening and I walked by my fathers and brothers grave site or I should say stood by recalling the day I was called from work almost sixteen years ago that my brother had passed away during the night. I looked about the hillside where he was buried and now my father as…

Grandpa needs to set the example

As I played with my grand baby throughout the weekend the learning that occurs often through simply watching the behavior of adults around her is amazing. One slip with a naughty word from someone and instantly vocabulary is increased even not connecting any significance to the word. Imitating movements as we go through our day is something that amazes me as a small child tries to emulate the parent or grandparent. I…

It is only a dropped feather

"If we consider the eagle feather with its light and dark colors, we could argue that 'the dark colors are more beautiful and, therefore, naturally more valuable,' or vice versa. Regardless of which colors are more beautiful, or necessary, or valuable, the truth is the bottom line: Both colors come from the same feather, both are true, they are connected, and it takes both to fly." Dr. Michael Garrett, Medicine of the…

Update on spine

Good news/bad news! Surgeon wants to insert three metal screws in my spine at the L4/5 spot because it is narrowed beyond other kind of repair. This would mean three days in hospital, three months recuperation and six to seven months of "taking it easy"; then if this doesn't work he will insert a rod along my spine because of the scoliosis.

I thought long and hard and decided NOT to go ahead with it at this time and have left it open because I am not getting any younger and I have plans…

Frustrated...

I had been planning and advertising a fundraiser for our team for the 2012 MS Walk in Cleveland this year. Not only was i able to get 5 Sponsors for our Team T-Shirt but was able to get numerous donated items for our raffles. We did not charge a cover charge, thinking it turned people off from fundraisers. We told people that we were depending on selling the raffle tickets. Well, today was our fundraiser and it was a total dud! I sunk a lot of time and money into it, advertising like… Continue

An owl calling

Last night I woke for a few minutes my wife thought I had left the burner on with a pot still on the stove I had cooked up my world famous chicken and rice for dinner. While up I stuck my nose out the door perhaps intuition who knows when wandering about the house half asleep. Deep in the pines an owl called and of all memories to unlock an instance three years ago flashed before my mind’s eye. It was about three o’clock in the…

Multiple Births

Are you seeing double or triple???

No, it's the likihood of multiples is increasing. Since many women are waiting 'til they're older before having children, they may need a helping hand. Invitro often results in multiples due to the number of embreyos placed in the womb. Also, the older a woman gets, the more liking she'll conceive multiples.

The number of twins born in 2009 almost doubled the 30 years previous. (Although this is a Canadian statistic, the U.S. and other countries…

Ask N NDN ~What Percentage Indian Do You Have to Be in Order to Be a Member of a Tribe?

By SONNY SKYHAWK

Tribal Nations are the only recognized arbiter of belonging to or being a member of a tribe. No other agency or arm of any government has that responsibility, other than the particular tribe to which a person claims to belong. Every tribe has its own membership criteria; some go on blood quantum, others on descent, but whatever the criteria it is the tribe’s enrollment office that has final say on whether a person may be a member. Anyone can claim Indian heritage, but…
