While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not finished her paper yet. She asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The girl replied, “Yes, a little. I couldn’t quite make up my mind because there are so many.” The teacher replied, “Well tell us what you have and we can help you finish.” The girl hesitated then read, “The Seven Wonders of the World are…”

The room was so quiet that you could hear a pin drop. The things that we overlook as simple and ordinary are truly gifts!

A gently reminder: The most precious things in life can not be bought or built.

High School Smiles

Posted on April 15, 2014

Most of what we read and hear about our educational system issues and our high school students being entitled, lazy kids who are all attitude and little substance was proven wrong to me this week. I was honored to have been invited to spend two days as a guest Presenter at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, where I spoke to hundreds of students about my books, writing and my 33 year career as a Police Officer. Most of the students had been required to read my book, “A COP’S LIFE” and I don’t know about you, but whenever I was “required” to do a reading assignment in high school, “enthusiastic” would probably not have been the word to describe my response. But I was overwhelmed at not only the participation of the mostly 16 and 17 year old Juniors, but the intelligent, thoughtful questions and comments that these young men and women had to offer. I was not the only guest presenter. My good friends Warren Lewis who wrote the screen play for “Black Rain” and “Thirteenth Warrior” among others, spoke about screen writing and Stephan Nasser who survived a Nazi Death camp and wrote the book, “MY BROTHERS VOICE” spoke about his experience and learning to forgive. This is not the first time that I have spoken to students at this school and I would like not only to thank English teacher Christi McEarchern, who arranged it, but the folks in the Gorman administration for inviting us. The three of us shared the same thoughts about the students at this school and all came away with the feeling that the next generation is full or promise, intelligence and compassion and it is schools like Bishop Gorman who are selflessly preparing these young men and women for their roles in future of America.
