Remembering 9/11

Originally posted on Seton Spirit:
It is the 13th anniversary of 9/11 and here’s a sobering thought for you: with the exception of a handful of 8th-graders, none of our students were born when September 11th happened. And for those few 8th-graders who were, they would have been just infants themselves, with no recollection of…

Best Parenting Advice I’ve Seen in a While

While trolling Pinterest today as part of my marketing job (Gosh, I love my job!), I came across this pin: It almost made me cry. What a beautiful list of wisdom. And honestly, as I read through them, I realized that I could certainly use a refresher in some areas. “Show your loved ones your … Continue reading

Remembering the Sacrifices

  This quote from an ancient Greek historian is never more apt than when you read the stories of real American heroes. (And I’m not talking about GI Joe). Check out the Center of Military History and look through their archive of Medal of Honor winners. Read the citations, such as those of Cpl Jason … Continue reading

Encouraging More than Simple Sacrifice for Lent

Originally posted on Seton Spirit:
Lent is fast approaching! Have you already been considering what you want to give up? Will it be chocolate? Fast food? Or perhaps Pope Francis has inspired you to give up the gossip. Sacrifice is one of the hallmarks of the Lenten season, and it’s one part that our children…

War is old men talking, young men fighting

Originally posted on musingsofanoldfart:
The above title is a paraphrased line from the movie “Troy” and while I cannot find it among any of the quotes from Homer’s “Iliad” it still resonates with me. Achilles is highly frustrated with Agamemnon and the other kings celebrating the day’s victory in battle, which none of them fought…

We Remember 9-11: Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning?

This is a repost from last year, but my sentiments haven’t changed, so I didn’t feel the need to update my words. Like our parents before us, who can tell you down to the detail where they were and what they were doing the day JFK was shot, most of us know where we were … Continue reading

And…We’re Back!

Originally posted on Watch This Space:
September is Hunger Action Month, and last year I felt like I let it pass by without having done anything significant, either through my words or my deeds. Hunger is something I feel strongly about, but I’m not sure how to translate that feeling into action. So maybe by…

How Much I Feel: Remembrances of Summer Past

I don’t know what it is about the summertime that makes me nostalgic. But this is the time of year when I am most reflective and introspective. I suppose it’s because so many of my childhood memories involve searching for perfect sea glass and exploring the rocky outcroppings that separated the private beaches from the … Continue reading

Z is for Zack Morris

That’s right: Saved by the Bell’s Zack Morris, for those of you who remember the Saturday morning TV show. I know, it’s his first name, which is hopefully not a cop-out. But deciding on a topic for Z was hard! From TV.com: “Saved by the Bell focused on Zack Morris and his friends: Samuel “Screech” … Continue reading
