It's been a long time now since September 11th turned into something other than just another day on the calendar. Goodness, I've lived through a lot of crappy times. JFK. MLK. RFK. The day John Lennon was shot. Columbine. The DC sniper attacks. Virginia Tech. The Boston Marathon bombings. Newtown. The day I thought my son was inside the Navy Yard when 12 people were killed. MH17. Gee...that is a lot of bad people doing a lot of bad things. I could go on and on but I don't really have an intelligent observation to make about all this other than like every other teacher on the planet since the beginning of time, I spent my life teaching little kids how to play nice together. Wasn't anybody listening? Come on people, play nice.
