It’s pretty much the same as it’s always been. Kids all excited to get back to class, seeing their friends after a summer of adventure. It’s a whole lot different than when most of us went to school. We had archaic instruments like rulers, protractors, and compasses (those things you clamped a pencil in and twirled to make circles.) We learned about something called penmanship, we used paper and pencil to diagram sentences (remember those?) and multiplied and did long division and you had to SHOW YOUR WORK!
It’s so much different nowadays when everything is electronic. Can any of these little darlings do math without a calculator? Use their smart phone to spell check?
The principle at our grade school was a family friend and Granny would march me to his office the first day every year and grant permission for Mr. Larkin to warm my behind if I misbehaved. Of course, back then kids had respect for teachers, didn’t try to assault them, and most of them finished high school without getting pregnant. If a girl did, she was taken out of school because her family was shamed. Now they have daycare classes for the 14-15 year olds who are already mothers.
I continue to pray for our country with the future in the hands of these little critters.
All the grandkids went back yesterday: RJ is in 7th and big sis is in 9th…HIGH SCHOOL! Daughter called me the other night having a mortality crisis. I assured her it never gets any easier.

Author Defends Black Lives Matter Textbook for White 6th Graders
I SHUDDER TO THINK OF WHAT THE PROGS HAVE WROUGHT
ABDO, a Minnesota-based book publisher, is set to release a middle school textbook written by Professor Duchess Harris and Sue Bradford Edwards about the anti-police movement Black Lives Matter.
The ABDO Publishing website, describing the 112-page Black Lives Matter textbook, says, “Black Lives Matter covers the shootings that touched off passionate protests, the work of activists to bring about a more just legal system, and the tensions in US society that these events have brought to light.”
In a recent appearance on Fox and Friends Weekend, Radio host Larry Elder said the Black Lives Matter textbook is about “indoctrinating children to believe that that black people are victims and white people should feel guilty about it.”
Added by CtH: I’ve said this before, but I’ll just say it again cuz I can.
- God’s way is forgiveness and love.
- Satan’s way is shame and hatred.
- Black Lives Matter is preaching the latter.
