You are your child's first teacher

I pointed out to my children how amazing the miners’ rescue was as well as how strong the men must have been mentally.  I paced the floor and we counted 15 feet across our bedroom, so the children could get an idea of how far the miners were underground.  I wanted them to appreciate the greatness of sciene and technology.  I presented it in a manner where they could see  themselves as scientists making practical, yet amazing discoveries and inventions.  

As I watched the capsule arrive inside the Chilean mine, I could not help but be moved bythe purposefulness of  technology.   I was fascinated to watch video images from a camera positioned more than 2,000 feet below the surface of the earth.  It captured a signal and broadcasted it around the world.  It was a testament to human creativity. 

 Point out the wonders of sciene to  your children.   Remember!  Your are your child’s first teacher.

    Thank God for the saving of these Chilean miners who some media-heads implied they would not likely be rescued safely or alive. But, beyond the media-head’s ignorance, the media-head’s incompetence, and their failure on their wrongful-speculations, there still remains the question of how many of these saved minors will end up divorced , separated, or the victim of suicide after later learning of situations that their wives or girlfriends were unfaithful to their “beloved” partners while they remained trapped under ground. Could take years. Might be time for those Chilean miners to seek out American attorneys, and sue those incorrect American media-heads out of existence. But, that would eliminate the entire CNN network (except for the Anderson 360 show), what then? Should those incorrect CNN media-heads be imprisoned for the crimes they committed against these rescued miners? Another case for a reconsideration of the value of the death penalty for the CNN media-heads and their staffers. Maybe CNN can sell tickets for their employees executions or raise some money by selling tickets in an auction-format too. Starting bids?
