It is once again Wishcasting Wednesday and Jamie Ridler asks us:
Where do you wish to be fierce?
With over 30 years in education, I know that I am becoming more and more fierce about mental health issues and abuse in elementary age children.
Children should have happy, carefree lives. So many come to school with huge burdens that prevent them from learning. There are so few resources for these youngsters. If we do not step in sooner, then we will have adults who are damaged and a heavy burden to society.
My greatest wish is that care and resources are provided much, much sooner for these young children that will enable them to have a much happier life.
As Jamie says:
"You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt above on your blog . Support wishes by visiting other participants. It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together."
