Hey Dudley Balmer & Nancy DiGiacinto Balmer what's you opinion think it could go on your website? I am asking, no begging, all of my facebook friends and family share this post and make it go viral so we can show this school that abuse against any child is NOT ACCEPTABLE! Please help me in my fight for justice for my son!! Autism is not excuse to abuse!!! On Thursday 1-30-14 I received a phone call from the school stating that my son had a rough day and in a struggle may have a small mark on his neck. The principal also stated that my son told him his para was hurting him and choked him. Because of these statements the school had to investigate. My son came home from North Branch Elementary in North Branch Mi with bruises on his neck. The following day we told the school that we were calling the police to report the issue. A few hours later we received a phone call stating the school reported the incident to CPS and it was forwarded to the local police department. By 1 pm we were in the North Branch Mi police office so they could take my sons statement. During this interview the police officer tried getting him to say that what happened was because he wasn't behaving, we were asked '''you've never had to grab him like that?', told how this man, accused of putting bruises on my child's neck, was such a great nice guy!, and that people don't understand autism so sometimes these things happen, but they're really trying to figure something out for these kids. I couldn't believe it! No I don't EVER put my hands on my child like that, regardless of his behavior there should NOT be bruises anywhere, I don't care how ''great' this guy is, and I definitely don't think that not understanding autism is a valid excuse for abuse!! I've asked the MI State Police to take over, but they will not and this officer also asked me if I ever had to grab my son like that and again No I don't! Also the school has not suspended the man accused and wont let me see the video. In the CPS report it clearly states my son was restrained but the school continues to tell me he wasn't. They are trying to sweep this under the rug and I refuse to let them!!

They walked in tandem, each of the ninety-two students filing into the already crowded auditorium. With their rich maroon gowns flowing and the traditional caps, they looked almost as grown up as they felt. Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and Moms freely brushed away tears. This class would NOT pray during the commencements, not by choice, but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it. The principal and several students were careful to stay within the guidelines allowed by the ruling. They gave inspirational and challenging speeches, but no one mentioned divine guidance and no one asked for blessings on the graduates or their families. The speeches were nice, but they were routine until the final speech received a standing ovation. A solitary student walked proudly to the microphone. He stood still and silent for just a moment, and then, it happened.

CHRISTMAS TREE TRADITION HAS ANCIENT ORIGINS

King Tut never saw a Christmas tree, but he would have understood the tradition which traces back long before the first Christmas, says David Robson, Extension Educator, Horticulture with the Springfield Extension Center.

The Egyptians were part of a long line of cultures that treasured and worshipped evergreens. When the winter solstice arrive, they brought green date palm leaves into their homes to symbolize life's triumph over death.

The Romans celebrated the winter solstice with a fest called Saturnalia in honor of Saturnus, the god of agriculture. They decorated their houses with greens and lights and exchanged gifts. They ga

FILL the sink with water
ADD 1 cup of vinegar and STIR.
ADD all fruit and soak for 10 minutes.  Water will be dirty and fruit will sparkle with no wax, or dirty film.

Great for berries too as it keeps them from molding.  Do this for strawberries and they last for weeks

This will also wash away our fears and doubts about the pesticides and chemical covers on the various fruits.
Please share with All your family members and friends!

Why Did Jesus Fold the Napkin?
This is one I can honestly say I have never seen circulating so; if this touches you, you may want to forward it. 

Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection? I never noticed this....

The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes. The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly folded, and was placed separate from the grave clothes. Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdale
