Re: Bullying and violence in schools


Sparque,

I hope this is interesting to you...and brings a smile. To me, it illustrates the value of diversion, or a wider field of understanding.

This has been making the rounds...


Lipstick in School

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was
recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were
beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom.

That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick, they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night the maintenance man would remove them, and the next day the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called
all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance
man.

She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the
custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses).

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked
the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and
cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.


There are teachers .... and then there are educators.

.....................................................

The way I see it is that babies have been born to war, famine, and pestilence since mankind has walked this earth. Seeds have been falling on infertile soil even longer.

Still, we grow, or not, as best we can...no matter what we experience. Who, among us, has NOT thought better of things we did in our youth?

My brothers used to run on log booms...until our mother found out. She had cat fits about it!

Lillian Gish has a line in the movie, "Night of the Hunter", that sums it all up...

"Bless little children...they endure."

Jane Goodall's "Four Reasons for Hope" is a beautiful essay.
