LET US NEVER FORGET 9/11/01
I have a favor to ask, but it's an easy one.
Target does this every year. They give out a million dollars. To schools. All you have to do it vote for them. Every vote is $1 and when they get to $25 the schools get a check.
Would you go here and vote for my grandson's school if you don't have another one to vote for?
The name of the school is on there - and you just type it in and hit vote!
The people in black are instructors. The kids in blue are the storm team and help teach. The red means a commitment to getting a first degree black belt. My grandson is number 5 from the left - 2nd degree. The girl got her 3rd degree. The boy next to her her - 2nd degree.
The best thing about growing older is that I am finally myself. I say what I want to say. I am not afraid anymore. I don't have to pretend to be someone I am not. I can speak up and be heard. I don't mean meanly. And I don't mean this meanly - I just don't care as much as things as I used too.
2. When did you first feel like a grown up?
I'm not grown up and I never really want to grow up!
DAH - CHOCOLATE ON CHOCOLATE ON CHOCOLATE.
4. What's the nicest thing a stranger has ever done for you?
You know I really can't think - because - so many people have done nice things for me - or said nice things - and I can remember saying - "Gee, that is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me," - it is not a thing/gift - it's probably someone understanding me - supporting me - and loving me just the way I am. Kindness and love go along way with me.
5. What's something you learned from your grandparents?
My grandmother Esther - was beloved - everyone including myself - thought we were loved by her the best! I mean she really loved me. She loved all of us - I have so many first cousins I don't know the exact count - but we all felt loved the best!
That is pretty awesome. Hope my grands feel that way too - I only have two!
6. Wednesday marks a sad day in the history of planet earth-9/11...what's something you do (or can do) to bring peace to your little corner of the world?
I really do pray for world peace - family peace - neighborhood peace - school peace - etc. all the time. When neighbors and families don't get along - I wonder how the world will.
7. Share a favorite quote, scripture, or song containing the word peace.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
This week is how proud I am of my grandson. He is a pain with school work I admit, but he has worked 7+ years to get to this place. Determination. He is heading for belt three - a minimum of three more years.
This boy with him is 16 - he just got his 2nd degree as well.
This is Mr. Zumba - he is the director of this facility. Believe me. the grandson has come a long long way from when he first started here. Mr.Zumba just tested for his 4th degree.
I forgot this man's name - he is 5th degree and is a Master. There are 8 belts all together.
The ceremony is where they student turns around and someone takes off the old belt and then turns around and this man - the highest belt there that night - puts the new one on him.
OKAY YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS - THIS IS SO CUTE!
