I spent several hours today tracking down what I thought might some useful resources for a new section at the main site. Since it's going to take me a few days to get it ready, I thought it would be worth posting parts of it here, first.

This is wonderful - I, for one, was put in a position where I had to tell my class about the events.  We were told that the principal would make an announcement to inform the school, and that we shouldn't discuss it beforehand.

When she finally came over the intercom to tell the school of the events, all she did was announce that there had been a terrible incident of terrorism - and told them where it had happened.  I was left to do the explaining and answer questions.

I think I did all right, because the kids all responded with unexpected maturity (with a couple of exceptions, of course).. It surely would have been great if I could have had these resources before that experience...

Thanks, m'friend..

What a wonderful idea! But to be honest, the very best resource for me is still right here, amongst the friends I've found at this site. Every emotion imaginable has been expressed, accepted, and shared. So I'm still putting Passions at the very top of the list.
