Over the course of the 7 years, I was a school teacher I learned two things. The first is that fair matters. The second is that no matter what we do as human beings, no matter what rules we have around us, doing the right thing matters. As a teacher in the beginning of the US AIDS (HIV) crisis i got written up for what happened in this story.

A child fell on the monkey bars, due to an unfortunate situation he cracked his arm on a metal playground bouncing frog (that was later moved). His arm literally split and the bone pushed out.

I grabbed his arm stopping the bleeding and carried him to the nurse.

All she asked me was “did you use the Aids kit?”

I would do it again, 100 times.

        • i hated getting yelled at for something I did, and then two weeks later the Superintendent calling me to say “based on the parents input you are getting an award/
          for what I was yelled for.

          there is no such thing as an atta boy coming from something stupid. THey never took the reprimands out of my file.

    • it was a horror, i actually got reprimanded twice, once by the principal for not using the AIDs kit, the other for telling the nurse that the child came first.
      (the child’s parents stepped in, and the nurse got reprimanded by the parent group)!

  2. Yes, we do think the same way, completely agree with you.
    Fair, did not happen to me as a child, and often I see bias towards others with no good reason.

    I can’t explain the unfair, but forgiveness is essential. My unfair treatment was initiated by an unfortunate chain of events that could have continued in a cycle, such as the middle east or other war torn areas, some years ago they did this to me, therefore..

    It goes on and on. If we put away our own issues and decide to be fair, we change history.
