" You must be the change you wish to see in the world " ---Gandhi

Question of the Week:

How has homeschooling affected your life? The way you think, act , conduct your daily life?
(Please, please, please answer and send back to:Grace911)

Responses to last week's question:
What're the invaluable "words of wisdom" somebody told you? (classic examples: "don't run with those scissors in your hand!" or "someday you'll kave kids of your own...then you'll understand...")

Got2BTru16 ( Joy Meadows ):
This would be something my dad said -- "Don't let anybody else do your driving for you." At the time, he was talking about driving. Such as people trying to get you to, say, hurry up and pull out of a parking lot. You know you don't have a big enough break in traffic, but the guy behind you is honking and revving his engine or whatever. But also, life application: make your decisions without trying to go along and keep everybody happy (which is impossible anyhow), and don't let somebody's bad attitude or zero responsibility affect your good judgment and end up ruining a couple lives...or a couple cars.

Sabriel42 ( Savannah Ruth ):

I would have to say the invaluable "words of wisdom" that someone has given me, would be from my mom. She has always told me to let God be my guiding light. To follow him in all that I do. I think this has helped me throughout my life and will help me tremendously in the future.


Subject: Billboards from God

New public service billboards created by a Dallas advertising agency are getting big attention in Dallas AND in the awards annuals. Here's a list of the variations of the "God Speaks" billboards. The billboards are a simple black background with white text. No fine print or sponsoring organization is included.... enjoy.

Will the road you're on get you to my place? -God

Big bang theory, you've got to be kidding. -God

My way is the highway. -God

You think it's hot here? -God

Have you read my #1 best seller? There will be a test. -God

Do you have any idea where you're going? -God

Don't make me come down there. -God



* I can't reach my license unless you hold my beer.
* Sorry officer, I didn't realize my radar detector wasn't plugged in.
* Aren't you the guy from the villiage people?
* Hey, you must have been doing 125 to keep up with me, good job.
* I thought you had to be in relatively good physical shape to be a police officer.
* I was going to be a cop, but I decided to finish high school instead.
* You're not going to check the trunk, are you?
* Gee, that gut sure doesn't inspire confidence.
* Didn't I see you get your butt kicked on COPS?
* Wow, you look just like the guy in the picture on my girlfriend's night stand.
* Is it true that people become cops because they are too dumb to work at McDonalds?
* I pay your salary.
* So uh, you on the take or what?
* Gee officer, that's terrific. The last officer only gave me a warning too!
* Do you know why you pulled me over? Okay, just so one of us does.
* I was trying to keep up with traffic. Yes, I know there are no other cars around, that's how far they are ahead of me.
* What do you mean have I been drinking? You are the trained specialist.
* Hey, is that a 9mm? That's nothing compared to this 44 magnum.


Where's The Baby?"

For weeks a six-year old lad kept telling his first-grade teacher about the baby brother or sister that was expected at his house. One day the mother allowed the boy to feel the movements of the unborn child. The six-year old was obviously impressed, but made no comment. Furthermore, he stopped telling his teacher about the impending event. The teacher finally sat the boy on her lap and said, "Tommy, whatever has become of that baby brother or sister you were expecting at home?" Tommy burst into tears and confessed, "I think Mommy ate it!"


This is a very emotional poem, I'm just warning everyone:

Somebody Should Have Taught Him

I went to a birthday party
but remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink at all,
so I had a Sprite instead.
I felt proud of myself,
the way you said i would,
that i didn't choose to drink and drive,
though some friends said I should.
I knew I made a healthy choice and your advice to me was right
as the party finally ended
and the kids drove out of sight.
I got into my own car,
sure to get home in one piece,
never knowing what was coming,
something I expected least.
Now I'm lying on the pavement.
I can hear the policeman say,
"The kid that caused this wreck was drunk."
His voice seems far away.
My own blood is all around me,
as I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedic say,
"This girl is goin to die."
I'm sure the guy had no idea,
while he was flying high,
because he chose to drink and drive
that I would have to die.
So why do people do it,
knowing that it ruins lives?
But now the pain is cutting me
like a hundred stabbing knives.
Tell my sister not to be afraid,
tell Daddy to be brave,
and when I go to heaven to
put"Daddy's Girl" on my grave.
Someone should have taught him
thats it's wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his mom and dad had,
I'd still be alive.
My breath is getting shorter,
I'm getting really scared.
These are my final moments,
and I'm so unprepared.
I wish that you could hold me, Mom,
as I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say
I love you and good-bye.
