I was going to post about this days ago. I’m sorry for taking so long. I’m just more concerned with being correct than I am with being first. So, if you’ve been on Twitter, or if you’ve checked in on CNN, you’ve seen this South Carolina strikes again. Monday, at Spring Valley High School in… Read More The Adventures of ‘Officer Slam’
Grades 1-5 were a strange but fun time in most of our lives. We were ignorant of all the responsibility we’d eventually have to take on once we got older, our parents did everything for us, and we got time set aside for us to just go outside and be kids.
