Boston, Bombs and America


There is no real upside to the senseless and meaningless killing and maiming of  any living thing but it is a tribute to the spirit and character of Bostonians and Americans that the number of people running towards the site of the bombing to render aid was equal to or greater than the number of those who were running away in fear.

Fear is a valuable tool but only if you turn towards it and face it, that is the difference between success and failure both personally and nationally.

About safrisri

I have been a teacher since 1971 and have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. My writings will reflect on my past mistakes and successes and what my students have taught me about education.
