“He who has so little knowledge of human nature to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition will waste his life in fruitless efforts and multiply the grief which he purposes to remove,” (Samuel Johnson).
As quoted in The Difference Maker by John Maxwell, p. 12.
“What do you think about the world situation?” the young boy asked.
The grandfather replied, “I feel like wolves are fighting in my heart. One is full of anger and hatred; the other is full of love, forgiveness, and peace.”
Which one will win?” asked the boy.
To which the grandfather replied, “The one I feed.”

Students in Mrs. Hardin’s engineering class (Midlothian High School (TX)), constructed air balloons over a period of time and today (Wednesday, Feb 19, 2014) released them to the skies … well, actually to the rafters of the Midlothian ISD Arena. More pictures are available at Engineering Feb 19, 2014.
A random thought. “Don’t mess with Texas” is a litter reduction campaign promoted by the state. I wonder what would be the impact if the state put advertising energy into “Don’t Mess with Texas’ Public Schools.”
Texas promotes its lottery. If the state promoted its K-12 Public Schools, I wonder what that would do for the understanding and perception of its school system?
So very proud of Midlothian High School’s sophomore, Dylanger Potter, who placed second in the Texas State 5A Wrestling Championships (Saturday, Feb 15, 2014) in the 132 pound weight vision. [Picture: Dylanger is on top]
