This is from his new teacher - from the first two hours of class today. Now she knows him in the fact that they switch for science and she was his science teacher. She knows him a little.
"I was very excited to know that GS would be in our class for the rest of the year. All of my students have been very welcoming. GS seemed to be excited, too.
Thank you for letting me get a look into who GS is, and I hope to continue to get to know him better as the year goes on. I can tell he has a big heart, and he has always done his best to meet my expectations, no matter how high. That is all I can ask for!!
This my friends is a GOD WINK and miracle. I tell you no lie, a teacher can make or break a student just like Susan said.
Happy birthday to Chuck Norris - wikipedia - I almost forgot a birthday.
Norris describes his childhood as downbeat. He was nonathletic, shy, and scholastically mediocre. Other children taunted him about his mixed ethnicity, and Norris daydreamed about beating up his tormentors. Norris mentioned in his autobiography that his father had a very serious problem with drinking and "wasn't there" a lot for him growing up. Norris admitted that he loved his father but did not like him. However, he professed that he only felt pity for the man because "that was just how he was, and he missed so much."
He joined the United States Air Force as an Air Policeman (AP) in 1958 and was sent to Osan Air Base, South Korea. It was there that Norris acquired the nickname Chuck and began his training in Tang Soo Do (tangsudo), an interest that led to black belts in that art and the founding of the Chun Kuk Do ("Universal Way") form. He created the education associations United Fighting Arts Federation and "KickStart" (formerly "Kick Drugs Out of America"), a middle school and high school–based program intended to give at-risk children a focus point in life through the martial arts. When he returned to the United States, he continued to act as an AP at March Air Force Base, California. Norris was discharged in August 1962. He worked for the Northrop Corporation and opened a chain of karate schools, which Chad McQueen, Steve McQueen's son, attended.
He grew through and in spite of adversity!
