Lynda, when my kids were in school, you would have been shocked at what
was in their history books. They no longer allow kids to bring them
home, so you generally have to go to the school library to read them.
The omissions and the revisions are shocking. Then, you look around and
you wonder...what does he think he 'knows'...because he finished high

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will
not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius
will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the
world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone
are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve
the problems of the human race"
~ Calvin Coolidge
