[br]Oh My .... The Assembly WAS beautiful ... but I can only imagine just how much of a reminder of Papa and his passing this would be.

Sometimes, as Parents we beat ourselves up over decisions made.
If there is anything that I could say by way of comfort, as much as this was a real moment where memories would be a true focus and painful... it might be a catalyst of sorts.... even though the Assembly was emotional, I'm quite sure that in the midst of her anguish, your Daughter was able to acknowledge her pride also... there are probably going to be several milestones for her to overcome, but she just faced a major one, unexpected, but major none the less.... In my thoughts

[br]I went to the Veteran's Assembly today (at the School)...... I cried throughout most (if not all) of the program. I can say that it was truly wonderful......

From the start, when the two little boys with their Mother, carrying the flag, big picture of their Dad / Husband currently serving in Iraq, flashing behind them on the screen, to TAPS, where all of the Children bowed their heads ( sob, sob) to the singing of each Branch of Service songs ( whereupon, the Vet's stood proudly) ..

If you get the opportunity next year, I wholeheartedly encourage you to attend... the pride; glory and honor were positively tangible...





My daughter is a 6th grade cheerleader & was in the group that went to Ky over the week-end. She didn't want to go to school today but I told her she had to. She loves school but was very upset about attending today. I had forgot about the assembly. After loosing her grandfather last year the assembly was pretty ruff on her. Last time she heard the Taps was at his funeral last year. She said the assemly was beautiful but she cried & thought of her papa the same time. If she would have only reminded me...I probably would have had her skip today.





Thank you so much. I'm not going to beat this topic to death but I just have 1 more thing to say.
Her teacher from last year knew about everything. She was near my daughter at the assembly. Last night when we talked before going to bed (something we ALWAYS do) my daughter told me when this teacher saw her getting upset...she looked at her & told her "to suck it up."
My daughter took this as being very cold hearted. I feel so bad she had to have both things coming at her at 1 time. As a parent wer'e supposed to be able to give them another perspective as to what something like this might have meant...instead. I had no words for her.



Show me where this teacher is...

My dad was a MARINE or I'm not sure how you define it except " once a soldier ,always a soldier". He was over seas when I was born but he has his " trunk" still full of war items which is pretty neat to look at.
You could say we had to stand the position " at ease soldier " . Being our family was Southern Baptist and being raised by a marine(who was the southern baptist preacher) it was very strict around our house.

*As some of you may have noticed..I un-registered. User name was Branded. I re-registered today to clarify this post. After going back over this I learned from my daughter last night that this WAS NOT told to her by a teacher. It was told to her by another student that the teacher said this. I was so angry at the time she told me about this all I heard was what the teacher said. The part of it being said by another student didn't register at that time. I would just like to apologize to the teacher here for the miscommunication. I spoke with the teacher about this today & apoligized to her on the phone...but I felt I should let it be known here...that this DID NOT come from any of our teachers.

I'm gonna cry again

I've searched the secret mists, I've climbed the highest peaks, Caught the wild wind home To hear her soft voice speak, No matter where I roam ...
