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…Continue

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…

There is NO WAY to reverse their internal clock
2:07 this morning
and where are they now
SLEEPING OF COURSE

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…Continue

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…Continue

?? Gracefully Broken!
I was in Dollar Tree last night, and there was a lady and two kids behind me in the LONG line. One was a big kid, and the other one was a toddler. The bigger one had a pack of glow sticks, and the toddler was screaming for them. The Mom opened the pack and gave him one which stopped his tears. He walked around with it smiling; but then the bigger boy took it, and the toddler started screaming again. Just as the Mom was about to fuss, the older child bent the glow…
Something to smile about, a lot to ponder upon, but all with a gem of positive thought for you.
A Great Lesson on Stress
A young lady confidently walked around the room with a raised glass of water while leading a seminar and explaining stress management to her audience. Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'Half empty or half full?' She fooled them all. "How heavy is this glass of water?" she inquired with a smile. Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. To…Continue
