monday's musing, late edition

Really? It's Tuesday already? Where does the time go?!

Candace sent me a terrific quote that has given me much food for thought: "That which can be destroyed by the truth should be." - PC Hodgell

So many angles on this one; I have been pondering as much as I can. Thank you Candace!

As an aside, my Bear's fifth grade class - as well as the other fifth grade at his school - did something called "Food for Thought." He came home very very upset. It seems that everyone used rice to pack socks and make "snowmen" with black bean eyes yesterday as a class project. We had just been at the store buying rice and black beans for the school food drive the day before (excellent protein source as a staple!), and he saw the snowman-making as a huge waste, and was horrified that some kids in his class were making decorations out of more food than their families might have at home. Mr. Romi and I both encouraged him strongly to talk to his teacher in a kind way - she has a very good heart - and let her know that he was upset about the waste of food. I'm still so impressed and amazed by him!

Have a great everyone!

Romi, I'm a volunteer tutor in our local middle school and am working with the 5th grade. What amazing, magical beings those 10 and 11 year olds are! Enjoy him while he's this wonderful age.

Hugs to Bear. He obviously has a good heart.

Bless Bear. We did a similar activity with the Rainbows (like Daisy Girl Scouts), but we filled the socks with scrunched up newspaper.

That which can be destroyed by the truth should be.

And right away 2 things come into my mind: the assasination of JFK and Robert Kennedy and the name Mr. Snowden. Are we sure we want to hear the truth? And what do we do that the truth is heard?
Well, and then, sometimes I think, what is truth?
