High School Memories

Sophia, my teenage grandchild, and my oldest daughter’s youngest daughter moved out of her parents' cocoon into a college dorm.

The job as I see it is to excel, receive a well-rounded education, and have some fun, while you’re at it. I know she can do it.

And as most folks know, the high school diploma is earned after a course of study lasting four years, from grade 9 to grade 12. The diploma is awarded and in many cases, it is seen as the first day of the rest of your life. Parker and Olivia are next!!!

Follow Your Dreams

No woman or girl, and no boy or man on earth should ever be prevented from pursuing a career in their chosen field of dreams.

As my oldest daughter, Natasha's youngest daughter Sophia is embarking on her college life away from home, she should know that the sky is the limit for her.

Enjoy University Life. You're an adult, so continue to act like one. Have you read any of the following books or watched the films?

One of my campus suggestions is to fall in love with the Library. It's a wonderful place for great ideas. 

Reigning With Fear

Ideas after wiping American tears. This could happen to anyone near and dear to us while USA politicians continue reigning with fear. 

Dozens of families in Texas, California and New York are devastated, while Congress in now enjoying another vacation and doing nothing about the cause of their family member’s deaths.  Register to vote and throw them all out. Americans have experienced over hundreds of mass shootings, including dozens of school shootings. WHY?

Textbooks Rejected

Is #RonDFL really trying to turn Florida’s classrooms into The Sunshine State's political battlefield at the polls?

The Florida Department of Education is rejecting dozens of math textbooks from the curriculum, claiming the books are including references to critical race theory and other banned topics, including social-emotional learning and Common Core.  

Reading Bans

It is time to push back against spineless mental midgets without a moral compass who are banning books considered literary classics.

Love yourself and be grateful for all you have in life. Learn to laugh at the mistakes you make along the way. Each day, feel the enthusiasm for your vision as if it has already happened. Stay open for the remarkable to occur. Young children may teach us something. As adults, we can be persistent in going for what we value.

Grow Silently

Confucius was the first teacher in China who wanted to make education broadly available and was instrumental in establishing the art of teaching as a vocation. He also established ethical, moral, and social standards that formed the basis of a way of life known as Confucianism, which is not a religion, as much as it is a global philosophy.

The Whole TRUTH

On earth, we worship in various ways and many faiths. From tribal beliefs to organized religions. Science proves to be our best option.

Alternative facts are not truths in the eyes of our judicial system. In court, we swear a solemn oath: to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. This shall and will be done.
