This past weekend my daughter Liisa attained the rank of black belt in Karate after three years. I am very proud of her.
During the ceremony one of the instructors said something that just amazed me. He said he contacted every television and news station in the area and let them know that 100 kids were celebrating their achievement – they set goals, they worked hard, and they made the right choice. Not one news agency turned out.
Consider this — if just one of those kids held up a convenience store the news would be all over it.
I couldnt agree with him more, what a sick place this world is becoming. where you only get recognized for shooting things or blowing things up.
