Daily Prompt: Pep Rally

My husband always tells me if you put your mind to it you can do it. Don’t limit yourself. Trust your abilities and trust that God will not abandon you if you ask for help. Don’t give up. A speaker at our school district asked us if we knew how 409 got its name. He proceeded to tell us that it took the creators 409 times to come up with the right formula. Remember Apple/Macintosh started in a garage by teenagers. Just because it is difficult doesn’t mean it is impossible. Keep trying, you can achieve your goal!!Image

Drawing Lines

I wanted to put a question to you all but first allow me to set the stage.

A fellow teacher and I were talking after school earlier this week and he was telling me about his daughter, who is in high school, being assigned a book to read on incest and rape. Apparently, this book goes in to graphic detail. I was appalled that this was allowed. He continued on saying that the teacher told his wife that she doesn’t have any say about this.

Where do you draw the line? What about “alternative lifestyle awareness”? Should this be promoted in public school? What should be parent responsibility and what should be school’s responsibility?
