Although sad, this is rediculous. I live in Lufkin, right now and work here as an insurance Agent. The majority of my clients are on SSI. ***DISABILITY*** All joking aside at least 40% of my clients are on SSI. Why are we teaching are kids in school at such a small age to use excuses for everything? All that does is later on in life live with excuses ...Such as, I didn't have a dad and so I am not susposed to be doing good at my school work and if I do something wrong I havce an excuse. This is going to dramatically affect them for the rest of thier lives, making it easy on these kids to find excuses for everything that they do the rest of thier lives. Especially if it is made to be that way by the people around them. Especially Parents and Teachers.

WHATEVER HAPPEND TO IF A HORSE THROWS YOU OFF GET YOUR A$S UP AND GET BACK ON IT ???

We need to teach more of this principal.

March 21 issue - They were prepared to die, even the truck drivers and supply clerks; any American who sets foot in Iraq must be. They made out wills, as the military requires, and left behind letters and videos for their families. The families in turn prepared for the day when they might open the door to find a chaplain on the other side. In military families the notion of duty is not confined to the battlefield. On the morning that 14-year-old Rohan Osbourne learned that his mother, Pamela, had been killed in a mortar attack on her Army base, his father dropped him off as usual at Robert M. Shoemaker High School, where three quarters of the students are the children of soldiers from nearby Fort Hood, Texas. "I might not get a lot of work done today, ma'am," Rohan politely explained to his teacher. "My mommy died yesterday in Iraq."

If a Students parent does happen to pass away. The student needs to be told that your father/mother has died and also told that he/she was one of the bravest people that have ever lived here in America and they need to be told that thier parents have had more apart of America than Christopher Columbus himself. They need to be TOLD to be PROUD of their mother/father because they died serving there country not only for AMERICA but for thier safety AS well.

Perhaps I am missing something, but I fail to see the linkage between your headline and the link to the article from MSNBC. I concur that "some" young people today use excuses for everything under the sun, however in this case it appears the young man went to school and "politely" informed his teacher that he was a bit mournful because of the death of his mother. Personally I give him a "10" for showing up to school, and being polite enough to speak intelligently with his teacher. Thumbs up to the lad...and God bless his mother for her service.

I dont get it. What did the kid do that was wrong? If anyone did something weird it was the father for getting rid of the kid next morning after the death, that was a mean thing to do.

The title of the thread? I'm sure mr Bush would agree with you

I;d think he means, how insignificant are anyone else's complaints and excuses compared to this kids? I mean, he mom is blown up in iraq, and he goes to school and apologizes for not being productive enough.How's ADD supposed to compare to that?

I don't know about the title of the thread...but that's like the saddest thing I've read in a long time.


I wonder what the teacher's reaction must have been to that. I hope he/she gave the poor kid a hug.
