A violent act occured in my classroom today, right before my very eyes. It was not a fight, or "just a fight", Lord knows I've broken up many-a fight... that does not scare me at all.... but this was a scary event. I cannot go into detail here, I don't know who reads this and it's not information that I can give out. But it happened. No one was hurt (thank, God!), but had it not been handled quickly, someone may have been hurt.
Then, somone (a parent of one of my students, actually) sent me this video from God Tube. It was exactly what I needed after a day like today.
