.@barackobama should give presidential honors to heroic teachers at Newtown’s elementary school. One account here:
Kaitlin Roig, Victoria Soto and Maryrose Kristopik are among the few teachers that risked their lives to save their students. Kaitlin Roig locked her studentsin the bathroom and kept them safe, while Victoria Soto was trying to do the same when she came face-to-face with the gunman and was shot, execution style. Maryrose Kristopik barricaded her music students in a closet, while the gun man fought to get in.
"Let us draw a lesson from nature, which always works by short ways. When the fruit is ripe, it falls. When the fruit is despatched, the leaf falls. The circuit of the waters is mere falling. The walking of man and all animals is a falling forward.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1841
The human trick in this century is to foster practices and policies that result in us FALLING FORWARD without falling down. Visit Dot Earth and join the journey.
