Do Schools Kill Ceativity?

YES YES YES THEY DO!!!!
Listen to Sir Ken Robinson about education. I know this is an old video but it is still very valid and it always hit home with me! He has such a lovely sense of humor too! I relate to this because I am also what one would label as ADHD now although like he says this condition was not known when I was born. The Roman Catholic nuns managed to cut me down to size, it was painful! Still suffer from that actually. They shattered my self-confidence and love for life! I’ve recovered some but not all together. It still comes up now and again! So it feels good for me to hear someone who thinks like I do.

Marathons for Peace

May El-Khalil founder of the Beirut International Marathon in Lebanon, the largest running event in the Middle East. May El-Khalil founded the marathon as an instrument for peace. Perhaps other Middle Eastern countries will pick up on this idea including Israel and the Moslem extremists?!!!! Why ever not, everything is possible. Click below.
