Nice tribute to teachers.However, it goes deeper than that.
It's an attitude of caring that we commonly see in our
society/communities/nation. Each time a tragedy occurs, many people rush to
their aid...including complete strangers. This is true compassion.What shocks us is when we hear or read of a situation in which a tragedy
occurs and people walk by. Thank goodness that is not common to the heartland of
Agreed.Teachers everywhere are under rated, under valued, and under
paid.And the Teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary showed the same sort
of valor....all while making barely over minimum wage.========MapleDonSpringville, UTThank goodness that is

Re: "Teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary showed the same sort of valor.... all

perspective -- teachers typically make more than Emergency Medical Technicians
and cops. Often more than firefighters, though firefighters have to work twice
as many hours to make about the same as teachers.And, then there are
Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coasties.All are required to
put lives on the line WAY more often than teachers, and would love to have
teachers' hours and pay.That doesn't diminish the heroism
of Oklahoma or Sandy Hook teachers.But it does place into
perspective the cynical comments of liberal Utah trade unionists trying to
exploit it for monetary gain.
Oh those teachers, they'll doing anything to get a raise...
