Well, you betcha I've seen the condition of the schools lately! The condition of our schools is much improved over the way things were before our children first budgeting BOE member came on board in 2010...AND conditions are steadily improving!<quoted text>
I feel good about myself, but thanks. Clearly you don't when you have to deflect and demean (in a cute way) once again. Hypocrites typically don't see themselves as one.
Actually I haven't seen a multitude of people flock to certain talks. I only attend ones that are "credible". Such as a BOE member traveling the state talking about the effects they have had on the schools system in which she (sorry, they) serve. Not a baseball player or medical doctor that talks about what he or she WOULD do to change the school system. Now if that medical doctor were giving a talk about heart transplants - probably something I would attend. Sheep follow many different things - doesn't mean they are credible things they are following.
When roofs are allowed to leak? Have you seen the condition of the schools lately? Both outside and inside? They are, quite frankly, horrible. More than the fiscal side of things, which is really the ONLY thing you belabor (and I am certainly not downplaying it), is the sense of community pride. and there certainly is none of that right now, sorry to tell you. the fiscal house may be in order, according to you, but the human element certainly is not.
And you better come in from all your sunshine, you may get a sunburn.
The last time I was in the schools was recently when I was driving my child to school and her grandparents were visiting us. My daughter grabbed her grandparents hand and said "you have to come with us and see my school! You'll just love it!"
Oh how good it is to enjoy these happy times of every day blessings (that are so often taken for granted)!
You betcha, the human element is certainly in order, when we all are just as happy as we make up our minds to be!
May God Bless My Family And May God Bless You and Yours!
Life is so good with gratitude for good things!
