Talking about tears

Yes, nothing or no one lasts forever. But please help me to understand: You still look good (what, only 68 or 72 or so?). Your words still flow intelligence . . . . I just wish the rabbi I had was like you. Talking about flowing tears . . .

Teaching is the answer to cursing

not all people follow the rules of conduct that is appropriate for society. That's where we come in. If we love God and profess his ways, then it is our responsibility to teach our children and others that certain types of behavior will not be tolerated. It is also our responsibility to let our children know that just because someone else does something wrong that we should not follow that conduct. I don't think their is a way to change all the world, but we can change our own attitudes.

the way it is

again ,here we are in a position that goes back since the begining of time.we as humans,civilation,what ever you would like to call it have cursed since cavemen dragged their wives around by the school trying to make an example is not going to carry a lot of weight.first off,almost everything in life always goes back to money,some of the wealthiest people I know curse 100 times a day,so if they fine the kids,who suffers ?johnny's dad, who is a vice-president of company,who will give him the $ to pay the fine, will be cussin'while he's doing it.suzie's dad who is barley gettin by on 300 dollar a week job will be cussin while givin it to her -and on top of that they will go without something they need that week because of the stupid the poor suffers. bottom line if they dont cuss while they are there,as soon as they get in a vehicle the first cd they put in will start out with a least 5 curse words(which our freedom of speech in this country grants them the right)and it just stems from a chain of command that started way before any of our time,so don't think anybody is going to "fix"the curse problem soon-dont we have bigger fish to fry-get real people.

Our kids are a reflexion of who we are. They behave based on the perception that they have of us. The better this perception the better the outcome...

Someone needs to do it.

If the parents are not teaching the kids to not curse, something needs to be done. There is an epidemic of lack of respect, for themselves or anyone else, shown by many children today, and one way this has manifest itself is cursing. Perhaps this will bring the subject to the forefronts of parent's minds, so they will deal with this issue properly. In the past, we used to be terrified if neighbors saw us do something wrong. Now, no one cares (they have their own problems).
