The following is from my town’s local news station.  After you read the article, scroll down a little and take a look at the comments that follow.  I’ve been homeschooling for 16 years and have been out of the loop about what has been going on in our local schools.


Morgan Elementary School is about a block from my house.  Z7 plays there after school hours sometimes.  E17 has homeschool color guard practice there.  Both Ian and the unnamed bully are my neighbors.

I am horrified, angry, and so sad.

There is a prayer meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 23 at 4:00 CT at the playground.  Would you please join with us in prayers for Ian, his family, our local public schools, and my neighborhood.

Matthew 5:44  “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,”

And yes, please pray for the other boys and their families too.

    I’ve shared this with my boys and husband, and we are all praying for him. It is such a shame that the school and the boys’ parents allow them to behave the way they have, and it has come to this. If there isn’t some form of punishment for those boys that gets through to them, they will surely live a life of crime. In our state, the parents would be charged wit the crime as well.

      Thanks for sharing Tisha and would you please tell your church wo their prayers will be added, also. As a busy homeschooler, I haven’t been paying that much attention to our local schools. I will now, though.
