Where is Respect?

We need to return to being respectful and stop calling each other names. What are children learning from all the intolerant stories and actions they are seeing on TV?

This article speaks my truth. I, too, am uncertain where this is going. Do your part to promote tollerance.

          It was really weird at school yesterday when I had a little girl put her hands over her ears because her parents didn’t want her to hear the president speak. (It was the announcer speaking!) The speech was wonderful – just what my students needed to hear. Don’t give up on yourself and you are the one in charge of how you turn out.
