Fragile

Posted by

Teachers and students share a bond that is very much unmatched in other realms. The protection that the students get is welcomed and appreciated.
When that protection is broken, the ache is felt everywhere.
For the past 2-1/2 days in America, questions about "Why Again" are everywhere. We grieve so deeply for the beautiful, fragile children and teachers who are now gone. We ask ourselves why...again.
I am so sorry. We all are so very sorry.
Those of us with children of our own are lost in this grief and despair.
We pray for those who have been taken from us and for those who must now go on alone.

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
