Great Tribute to a Life Time Of Commitment as a Teacher

What a wonderful honor for this teacher. Brought me to tears. The Haka always gives me goose bumps as it is meant to do. This video was two years ago but who’s counting.

There are probably one or two teachers in my life that would deserve this honor. Well they probably all did to put up with me.

Poem From The Heart – Drugs

Carrie Wright

October 12, 2015 ·

I saw this on Facebook and really felt the need to share it. I have NEVER seen a more perfect poem, written in the saddest way. 

“I destroy homes, tear families… apart – take your children, and that’s just the start.
I’m more costly than diamonds, more costly than gold – the sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.
And if you need me, remember I’m easily found.
I live all around you, in schools and in town.
I live with the rich, I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door.
My power is awesome – try me you’ll see.
But if you do, you may never break free.
Just try me once and I might let you go, but try me twice, and I’ll own your soul.
When I possess you, you’ll steal and you’ll lie.
You’ll do what you have to just to get high.
The crimes you’ll commit, for my narcotic charms, will be worth the pleasure you’ll feel in your arms.
You’ll lie to your mother; you’ll steal from your dad.
When you see their tears, you should feel sad.
But you’ll forget your morals and how you were raised.
I’ll be your conscience, I’ll teach you my ways.
I take kids from parents, and parents from kids, I turn people from God, and separate from friends.
I’ll take everything from you, your looks and your pride, I’ll be with you always, right by your side.
You’ll give up everything – your family, your home, your friends, your money, then you’ll be alone.
I’ll take and I’ll take, till you have nothing more to give.
When I’m finished with you you’ll be lucky to live.
If you try me be warned this is no game.
If given the chance, I’ll drive you insane.
I’ll ravish your body, I’ll control your mind.
I’ll own you completely; your soul will be mine.
The nightmares I’ll give you while lying in bed.
The voices you’ll hear from inside your head.
The sweats, the shakes, the visions you’ll see.
I want you to know, these are all gifts from me.
But then it’s too late, and you’ll know in your heart, that you are mine, and we shall not part.
You’ll regret that you tried me, they always do.
But you came to me, not I to you.
You knew this would happen.
Many times you were told, but you challenged my power, and chose to be bold.
You could have said no, and just walked away.
If you could live that day over, now what would you say?
I’ll be your master; you will be my slave.
I’ll even go with you, when you go to your grave.
Now that you have met me, what will you do?
Will you try me or not?
Its all up to you.
I can bring you more misery than words can tell.
Come take my hand, let me lead you to hell.”

4. 11 body fluids we couldn’t live without. Saliva, Urine, sweat, Bile, Blood, menstrual Fluid, Mucus, Pus, semen, tears, Vomitus.

a. Bile – bile salts, which function like soap to break down dietary fats, enabling them and fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D and E to be absorbed. They also help to prevent the cholesterol-containing bile in the gallbladder from forming gallstones.
b. Blood – contains cell fragments called platelets and clotting factors that help to seal leaks that may develop in blood vessels.
c. Menstrual fluid – menstrual fluid is one of the body fluids with the strongest psychological and cultural overtones
d. Mucus – keeps the lining of the respiratory system from drying out and also filters out dust and infectious agents in the air we breathe.
e. Pus – Pus under the skin is often found in a pimple, but deeper in the body a larger collection is known as an abscess. Pimples and abscesses represent the body’s attempt to contain the spread of an infection
f. Semen – Contains fructose, a sugar that nourishes the sperm, as well as alkaline secretions that help to neutralize the normally acidic environment of the vagina.
g. Saliva – contains antibacterial enzymes and antibodies, as well as mucus itself. Saliva helps to moisten food, which is important to lubricate chewing and swallowing. It also enhances taste, because if the chemicals in food were not in a liquid medium, they could not be detected by taste receptors.
h.Sweat – Most important role is thermoregulation, helping to cool the body when it begins to overheat.
I.Tears – serve three functions: to lubricate the eye, to remove irritants such as smoke (and a sulfuric acid-producing chemical from cut onions) and in association with emotional states such as sorrow and joy.
J. Urine – Average adult produces about 1.5 liters of urine per day. Produced by the kidneys and stored by the bladder, urine contains many substances that must be removed from the body to maintain a state of health. These include the breakdown products of protein metabolism, which would become toxic if they were allowed to accumulate in the blood. Urine also serves as the principal means for removing excess salt and water from the body.
K. Vomitus – vomiting purges the body of toxins

Poem Friday – 09/11/2015 – Our Tom’s Memorial

IMG_0224

The Memorial for our Tom Was held last Friday Week
The weather was partly sunny and partly bleak

IMG_1348

Most of his friends wore the distinctive white hat
As Tom used to wear, rain, wind or hail on his head it sat

IMG_1349

Our Tom he was a return soldier a Vietnam Vet
For His countries appreciation, The Purple Heart medal he did get

To the Houston National Cemetery we all rode our bikes in formation
As we are so proud of him as a person and he fought for the USA nation

IMG_1374

To witness this ceremony for me was an honor and a blessing
The patriot guards Standing attention with the pride they were addressing

IMG_1382

As the ceremony started tears from Heaven fell again
Those men stood at attention with the flags, in that pouring rain

IMG_1385

The tradition of the gun salute and the bugle playing Taps
Made you feel so proud to be a witness, gave me goose bumps as silence lapse

IMG_1387

The flag folding ceremony was equally impressive with great precision
To his son it was presented, I am sure Tom  would have been proud with that decision

IMG_1390

Just as the ceremony finished, no kidding, there was a single clap of thunder
Some one said the Gates of Heaven just opened, was he present?, it makes you wonder

The Anzac On The Wall

Being a bit of a Poet myself I thought you may get the same enjoyment out of this poem as I did. 

Enjoyment, well that may be the wrong word, maybe appreciation may be better,  as it brought it brought me to tears.

It is such a wonderful story but it brought some emotions  to the top as I have 3 friends that are just holding on to this life by a string and the sadness of this story made the tears flow. But thats ok sometimes you need something like this to bring things to a head and not hold on to them..

This poem is a beautiful Australian story.
