    No Bullying!

    As bullying gets worse and worse, I've come to realize how bad it actually is. Every time I see someone at school in the halls (popular-unpopular) getting bullied it just enrages me.

    Funeral Procession

    My grandmother taught me several things before she passed away and many of them have stayed with me to this day.

Suezel, Irvine

Good parenting is many things but none greater than giving the gift of a grandparents wisdom and love. if you have been through a broken relationship, do not take it out on the grandparents of your ex-spouse just for spite. You will leave a void in your children's lives they can never get back. Teach your children to respect the elders just as would every other important thing and encourage them to love their grandparents, no matter what side they come from.
Paula, Montana

I believe that respect should be honored and cherished, not taken for granted.
Toni, Ohio

I'd like to be the kind of person that when people come in contact with me and leave my presence, they feel better, not worse.

Mary, Utah

you can spend your whole life telling yourself how much you love someone but it's not really love until you give it away!
john, honold
