That’s my boy!

My son wrote a very sweet essay about the people and things that made him what he is today.  I thought you all would enjoy these two paragraphs:

I also admire the people in the Marine Corps and the Navy Seals.  They are willing to give their lives to fight for our country.  They have also helped me find out what I want to do in life, which is to become a Marine or Navy Seal.

My country also helped make me who I am today by giving my parents a good job, a nice house, and a nice school.  My country also gave me patriotism.  It also is a free country so I am not a slave, and if I were a slave I would not be who I am today.

    What a wonderful lad! I know you are very proud. Let him know it was liberty and freedom that ALLOWED your family all that you have by working hard, since this allows everyone to seek their own level without interference and is NOT a GIFT from the government. I know he knows better, just a poor choice of words, but damn good for Marin county! Keep up the good work!

    You have an amazing memory, Ymarsakar.  Montessori is a long time ago.  He’s at middle school now, and doing pretty well.  I still have problems with the public school curriculum, but I’m learning that the values lessons I’ve given my kids seem to stick.

    I have a low attention span. I jump from topic to topic, in search of new information and new ways of thinking.

     Mr. B probably still thinks this is a fad on his son’s part, but it looks like this one has legs. It’s one thing to talk, but quite another thing to do daily activities in furtherance. This trains the body and mind to combine.

    Conviction has its own gravity well, as people can easily observe in the modern era.
