Four More Wake Ups

Some weeks it is hard to go back to school.  This is one of them. 

Christmas is around the corner.

Finals and Study Guides have to be written.

The last unit still needs to be graded and put in the gradebook.

And I can't get the students and teachers of Sandy Hook and the town of Newtown, Conneticut out of my mind.

I watched the Kindergarten kids say the Pledge this morning with tears in my eyes. Such innocent children...
We only have 2 more "get ups"! :)

I don't think anyone can get them out of their minds. I know from personal experience what it is like to have a child die. But at least ours died naturally and not in circumstances which so defy comprehension. And so many in one small comnunity - there cannot be a person there who has escaped being directly affected.
