I'm sure we are all profoundly sad about the tragedy this week, but as I carefully choose what information I'm reading about this event, I'm noticing the buzz about how smart (genius) the young man was who lost his way.
I have very mixed feeling about this image. I hope mental health issues can be imporved for so many, but I have such little faith in media that I'm wondering what spin they will put on highly gifted children who are homeschooled.
This board is always so careful to protect our own. I wonder who will speak positively about our children and our choices to give them the best we can.

On a happier note...I hope everyone has a very good holiday season.
