Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Great pics. The more people change, the more we stay the same.

I was thinking about the ages of the school children learning. "little cat" on the blackboard.

Today those same aged children are using computers, facetime, and getting their first cell phone. :135:

I was just reading that in the USA today at least 30 children have died of the flu strain this year.

Just think between 1917-9, millions died around the World.

A few posters should look at the photo's of the Flu epidemic and the kids in the iron lungs because of Polio. Which has been mostly eradicated with a (Oh My God) Vaccine!
Common sense is like deodorant, the people who need it most never use it.
