Letter to the Editor

Now is a time for unity as we deal with tragedy
September 13, 2001
Now, as never before: rally ‘round the flag, Eudora. Adjectives used by the media are piling up. They include horrifying, devastating, unexplainable, horrid, awful and many more. But words can’t describe the events of the past two days. The pictures we’ve all seen will be burned forever as a memory of what life in America was like the moment it changed. We’ll forever be more cautious, more frightened and God willing, more protected. The path our country takes, whether it be war or strategic strikes, will never make us feel better about what happened.
The little things make the grade
September 13, 2001
Prior to the start of school, I was visiting with a friend and we were discussing what “truly” makes the difference in education.

The conversation then went from education to life in general. This includes everything we do as part of a normal day to include parenting.
