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 America.

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.

Connecticut is in the bleeding heart Liberal NorthEast.
Save the showmanship, and stop trying to make this a Republican vs. Democrat issue.
Because it isn't.

Re: "Teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary showed the same sort of valor.... all while making barely over minimum wage."

Just to keep this in 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.
