Should Teachers Be Armed? — “Virginians are divided on whether they would support legislation to train schoolteachers and administrators to be armed on school grounds, according to a poll conducted at Virginia Commonwealth University. ‘It was almost split right down the middle,’ said Robyn McDougle, director for the Center for Public Policy in VCU’s L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs.” [Connection Newspapers]

Some slick spots could develop, especially on untreated roads.” [Capital Weather Gang, Twitter]

He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead.
