Actually he isn't a very good student. Doesn't matter. You can't go in there after living on fantasy island. My brother teaches at our old high school (the one he would go to). The last kid from the burbs who had to go in there they found crying in an empty room at lunch. The last substitute teacher who was there on Friday just left in the middle of the day. She actually left a cup of hot coffee on her desk and just bolted. They were worried she had been kidnapped or worse.

Yeah, coming from a fairly upper-class suburban school, I don't think a lot of the kids would make it in a tough city school. That is very nice of you to try and help a student out, even one that isn't a good one. That school does sound bad really bad though.

Our education is so discriminatory (against poorer folk). It's really sad.

Hmmm... loud bang came from the basement. It sounded like it came from inside and there were no following noises, so no one broke in. Plus why would anyone break into my house?

I just wonder what kind of catastrophe it is The ceiling caved in, something fell of the wall and broke, in this house, you never know

My wife and I just sponsored a little girl that lives in Columbia. We'll see to it that she gets a good education and proper healthcare, or the group Compassion International will. I'm looking forward to meeting her one day, possibly at her highschool graduation in 12 years.

My church sponsors like 30 kids in various third-world countries. That's something I'd like to do one day.

That's a very nice thing to do. That really would be cool to go to her graduation and see what a great outcome that the years of donating your money had on her.

Here is the website, if anyone is interested in more information:
http://www.compassion.com/default.htm
They are listed with the BBB, Charity Navigator, and all of the other "watchdog" groups. They are a legitimate charity that gets money to the proper places.

I've been taking multi-vitamins every day for the first time. I definitely feel more energy.
