This is a scary photo – but medicating your child “to fit in” is a scary thought. To Whom are you trying to please? A bad teacher? Or God who made that child?
I was privileged to see a first or second grade teacher, in 1961, patiently calm down a very disturbed little boy after class one day.
He was jumping from desk to desk. I hope it wasn’t her disturbing him. Something was bothering him inside. Either home life or school life.
I always pray for him. I always wondered what happened, to him. No child should ever be that upset.
God allowed me to see only a snippet of his life, so that I would remember to pray for him all my life.
I remember this playing on the radio and record player, in my house. Lots of good memories.
WOLF BLITZER, CNN: You’re used to this kind of stuff, but share with our viewers what’s going on between you and the White House.
BOB WOODWARD: Well, they’re not happy at all and some people kind of, you know, said, look, ‘we don’t see eye to eye on this.’ They never really said, though, afterwards, they’ve said that this is factually wrong, and they — and it was said to me in an e-mail by a top —
BLITZER: What was said?
WOODWARD: It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this.
BLITZER: Who sent that e-mail to you?
WOODWARD: Well, I’m not going to say.
BLITZER: Was it a senior person at the White House?
WOODWARD: A very senior person. And just as a matter — I mean, it makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, ‘you’re going to regret doing something that you believe in, and even though we don’t look at it that way, you do look at it that way.’ I think if Barack Obama knew that was part of the communication’s strategy, let’s hope it’s not a strategy, that it’s a tactic that somebody’s employed, and said, ‘Look, we don’t go around trying to say to reporters, if you, in an honest way, present something we don’t like, that, you know, you’re going to regret this.’ It’s Mickey Mouse.
