I ada- mantly feel that the solution to this invisible demon is a spiritual one. While it is no one's fault this continues to occur, we as spiri- tual human beings can have a positive impact on the lives of these troubled young adults. "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers. against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.'" Ephesians 6:10-12 Our battle to save our chil- dren is indeed a spiritual one. Yes. there are many things we. as par- ents and mentors, can do to help guide our children. This includes keeping a close eye on them, their friends, the games they play, the music they listen to, the televi- sion shows they are watching. Lord knows that Satan is using every bit of technology possible to corrupt these young, innocent minds. Ultimately, though, the prob- lern ~s a spiritual one, one that we cannot physically grasp. I am call- ing all adults in our community to confront this, vile demon of suicide head on through prayer. Pray with your children. Take get votes from teachers, not the general public. However, as a former student of public schools and mother who sent her daughters to private Christian schools until high school age, then to public school for high school. I will offer a few suggestions: 1. Common sense tells you how to handle education: Teach children the BASICS: to read. do math and understand science fun- damentals, spelling and vocabu- lary, teach music, penmanship, But he doesn't have time to talk to the General in charge Of the war in Afghanistan or figure out how to put people back to work! Why? Of course he's waiting for the stimulus package to work Ha! You know that is just another boondoggle ! ! The Congress & Senate are at it again. We were better off when they were on vacation. At least they weren't making any more stupid laws. While you are watching their left hand they are and civics tthat is. how to be civi- busy with the right one. You can't lized to your fellow students and keep up with it all. Anyway they not beat them in the head with a won't l~t you see ,the bills before l0 ft. wooden plank). Teach this they vqte on them. I heard Presi- in English, in the early years, so dent Obama say every bill would they are capable of understand- be put out for at least 72 hours. What ~ oke Ha. Of course Con- ing the English language. Later, in middle and high school, they gressrn can read and understand the more take 2 complex text books and con- & the~ cepts, undersi 2. Push for education lawma vouchers so parents can send protect their children to private and/or or Sen; parochial schools, out re, 3. Support home-school-should rag. hell ar 4. Support school boards ington that push for extra-bigb-stan- enougt dards in elementary school by fore v~ providing them with extra tax Se dollars. 5. Instill in elementary and middle-school children, they WILL go to college. Do not present college as a choice, but a fact of life. an Conyers said it would lawyers & himself 2 days still probably wouldn't and it. WOW! This is your ~ers at work! May God us If our Congressmen Ltors vote on any bill with- tding it personally, they be impeached. What the they doing up in Wash- that they don't have time to read the bills be- ting on them? nator Bingaman & Sen Udall 1)oth said they were going to votelyes on the health care bill, even tho they are going to cut 6. Educate the high school B~ students so they go directly to nation. College or University, NOT to lion dc "'Junior College". Junior college & daul is for those who failed high our gu school, are ou Many, many students drop they jt out not because they don't get or wha help at home, but because the fight a teachers didn't spend enough how. time teaching the basic reading tax pa in elementary school. Afterfor an school, television, cell phones, land-II $500 b~llion from Medicare. Take a pill you old people & shut up!! Lt as broke as we are as a they still send $2.5 mil- liars to Lybia-Kadifi's son :hter. Why??? They hate ~s people. What the hell : politicians doing? Are st sitting on their thumbs : ever? It seems they could gainst stuff like that any- )r against $259 million of ~er money given to Gore atitomobile plant in Fin- FINLAND? What? I have after school activities and absent parents do not bode well for an educational atmosphere for some children. Learning to read must take place in the CLASSROOM. An exceptional elementary school education will lead to suc- cess in high school. If the child does drop out of high school, ba- sic reading ~and math skills learned in elementary school will get them through the rest of their life and even a minimum wage job. Those who cannot read nor do math can't fill out the appli- cation. I attended ten different el- ementary schools by the end of my 5~ grade, in Texas. Would never have made it to the 9'~ grade never n my 77 years seen such disdaiz & disregard for the citi- zens o~the USA or their money, NEVEr! I ~aw ole Pelosi sniveling & slobbering on TV the other day about the rhetoric she says is downright scary. Well let's see people[, SHE has called people like yo~ & me a mob, un-Ameri- can, Astroturf, & other politicians called us unruly mobs, Nazi, stu- pid Rednecks because we ask questions like, "What's in the bill? Why don't you want people to see it? Why not discuss it on TV?" Sure they udder a few m- coherent words but not what's in the bill. Why?
