monday's musing, late edition
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!
