    responders, medical personnel, counselors and any other staff who were deeply involved in this tragedy and others like it get all the help they need.  They too need a lot of caring and assistance do deal with the horrors they must have seen.  

    For the sake of educators, people tend to forget that that to teach elementary school and do it well, you must love children.  So when the stories of teachers risking their lives for their pupils hit the air waves, those brave demonstrations showed the dedication and passion they had for the youth in this country.

    Growing up around teachers all my life, I learned that working in the education field is not for the weak-hearted.

    And for the courageous who chose this life, they should be treated well--especially when they face the darkest days of their career.
