perspective.

I support the construction and renovations needed in Decatur Public Schooling. (although this video is ironically hilarious. first few seconds we see students using paper and pencil next to available computers, and it goes right into a statement from Superintendent Gloria Davis "paper and pencil are gone" in regard to the need for new technology in classrooms). I love Mrs. Davis, and support Decatur Schools...but to say paper and pencil are gone is like saying let's not teach people how to walk anymore because driving is now possible. :)

But I also think it's important to keep our perspective.



We have it pretty good. :) As we move forward as a community that desires to serve its future faithfully, may we retain a healthy appreciation for all that we have, both in substance and ability...
