History teacher

In September of 2005, on the first day of school, Martha Cothren, a History teacher at Robinson High School in Little Rock , did something not to be forgotten. On the first day of school, with the permission of the school superintendent, the principal and the building supervisor, she removed all of the desks in her classroom.

When the first period kids entered the room they discovered that there were no desks.

'Ms. Cothren, where are our desks?'

She replied, 'You can't…

Honor all Veterans

Well today is a day to Honor all Veterans and hopefully you will.

Fortunately i am old enough and have much history that shows how even back in the early 1900's our Military and Veterans were part of our schools education. Way back then there were military pictures of our Brave, Honoring them and teaching why they deserved Respect. Nothing in my heart will ever change how I feel about our Veterans and those who serve today.. But there was a time when our Government and some Citizens…

That Silent Tear

That Silent Tear

The song plays and a silent tear rolls down her check

She can never forget the sacrifices so many made

The many notices of another life lost

All the condolences sent out to the Families

Nor can she forget those who returned with torn bodies and souls

Yes the song plays and the tears silently fall

Because she knows her Brothers and Sisters who wore the Uniforms

Will also remember with sadness in their…

The past, present, what will the future hold for us?

Yep it's one of those days when I think of times past... Wooden boxes held everything, no cardboard or plastics back then, milk in gallon cans or glass milk bottles and paper was never thrown on the ground instead it was saved to put under the kindling to start a fire in the wood cook stove...Sure life was never easy back then…
