A Phoenix Rises From The Ashes

A while back, I struggled with some "realities" that were definitely not fair, and could best be described by saying STUNK. No matter how deeply it offended my moral convictions, nothing I could do would change it. I decided I could either ensconce myself in the muck and mire of the situation, or refocus my priorities and concentrate on the things that really mattered to me.

I am proud of the progress that has evolved from this change in my way of thinking, and want to give a shout out to the kids working so very hard on one of the many projects that have brightened my mood and improved my days. This site is designed and maintained by 8th graders, and the fact that these students are writing articles OUTSIDE of any Reading or Writing class is such an accomplishment. Is it perfect? Not by any means... Do they have pride in what they are doing? Beyond measure... Do I want to hear any criticism or critical commentary on mechanics, structure, or creation? My retort comes in the form of a question... Do you enjoy your head enough to risk me biting it off?
