My wife teaches second-graders at Christ Journey Church in Coral Gables. Last Sunday her lesson plan was to discuss the word “determination.” She asked the children to name someone they thought showed determination. Among their many responses were: President Barack Obama, Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and last, but certainly not least, their teachers.
I personally feel great about the education our young children are receiving. My thanks and appreciation go to our school system for teaching this information to our seven-year-old children. Who knows what they will accomplish in their lives as they continue to learn.
