Shooting Fuels Parents’ Fears All Over Again

In light of the shooting in TX, from the New York Times, how the shootings in schools, affect everybody in the country, not just those who are directly involved, in the schools where the shootings had, occurred, written by Kimiko de Freytas-Tamura, Chelsea Rose Marcius, & Lola Fadulu…

Last Tuesday night, Luz Belliard sat on the edge of her bed in upper Manhattan in the room she shares with the nine-year-old granddaughter, Victoria, and thought about what to say.

Victoria, a third grader, was sitting on her own bed, which was covered with stuffed animals; she had already seen on the evening news that children her age had been killed in a mass shooting at a school in Texas.

Now, Belliard had to consider just what she would tell Victoria on their walk to school the next morning: Listen to your teachers.  Get down on the floor.  Remember the drills you do in class.

“She’s young, but she understands—sometimes too much,” Belliard said Wednesday outside Victoria’s school in Washington Heights.  “To take your child to school and come back to see them dead, it’s not fair.  It should not be that way.”

“It’s sad that a lot of children died that way.  Those children had a big life ahead of them,” the girl said. “When I hear that kind of stuff it makes me scared.”

In New York and across the country Wednesday, children, parents and caregivers grappled with the aftermath of the deadly shooting in Uvalde, Texas, where an eighteen-year-old gunman killed nineteen children and two teachers before being shot dead by authorities.

They hugged their children a little tighter and lingered a little longer at drop-off.  They could imagine too easily a gunman bursting into their own child’s classrooms.  And they were once again faced with a haunting question: Is there anywhere in America schoolchildren can truly be safe?

Some schools around the country took extra precautions in the wake of the shooting.  Schools in Texas and Florida banned backpacks from buildings Wednesday.  Officials in states including Georgia and Virginia sent extra officers to schools as a precaution.  In New York City, home to the largest school system, officials are considering ways to tighten security, including locking school doors after children have arrived for the day.

The shooting has cast a somber tone over the final days and weeks of the school year.

“Sometimes I don’t know what to say publicly,” Deborah Gist, superintendent of schools in Tulsa, Oklahoma, wrote in a Facebook post.  “I feel a huge responsibility to use the right words.  How, though, do I express the horror, outrage, frustration, disappointment, pain, and fear that an event like the shooting in Uvalde brings?  It’s a parent’s, a teacher’s, a principal’s, and a superintendent’s worst nightmare.”

And so, this is how these things affect the children, because they’re in the immediate environment of all of this, and, there’s still the need for tighter gun control laws, to make the arms not that easily accessible to just anyone who wants to buy, and, these shootings still don’t just, affect those whose lives are altered directly, those with victims in the tragedies, it affects, everybody in the world.

With the Members of the Public, Coexisting with the Virus, Did the Schools Become a Petri Dish for the Virus First?

Off with the head of MORONS who came up with this, half-assed idea, if only, I have the power here, but I don’t, so yeah, those stupid moronic government officials, get to see, another, day (sigh…), off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The committee of the DDP invited the researcher of the Central Research Agency, He to present the case studies, He mentioned that contracting the virus naturally and the vaccinations, combined, can get us the “combined immunity”.  And, the assistant director of Chenggong University Hospital, Lin also in the videos, explaining the tactics of the CDC: most of the public had three vaccinations, “at this time, everybody should contract the virus once”, to get the immunity going, this is more effective, and longer-lasting than the vaccines.

the classrooms, taking the preventive measures…photo from online

The words of these two officials had sparked up debates.  Although He had not advocated that people get infected, but instead, telling the people to not be afraid of contraction, and the Chenggong University had pulled off the video, to get the more “updated version”, then streamed it online again, stated that MERS-CoV will become flu-like, that we need to be careful, but not fear it; but as the number of cases is on the steady rise, both officials’ beliefs seemingly, coincided to explain the CDC’s “zero-plus-seven” new rule of quarantine, forcing us to get into the minds of coexisting with the virus.

The defense of spread across the schools can exemplify how messed up the government’s rule against the spread is, how ambiguous the mandates of the government had been from the start.  Based off of the “Zero-plus-Seven” rule, if the family members of the contracted persons had three shots, and has a negative reading for the quick-scan results, then, they don’t have to be quarantined; and, this rule does not apply to the students in middle and high school who had not had their third vaccine, and so, the middle and elementary school students are exempt from this rule; and yet, the teaching staff of the schools, still need to abide by the rules of the school, staying away from school for seven days.  Yet, there’s, the ambiguity of the rules of defense against the spread of MERS-CoV in the schools, the conflicted policies, getting away from the reality of things, lacking empathy, scapegoating.

Up until the twenty-first, there are a total of close to 130,000 students who’d contracted the virus, and, there are, more than two thousand schools that’s stopped their schooling sessions partially, or completely.  The most numerous of confirmed cases of contractions were found in the elementary schools, the universities came second, and preschools, third.  The Department of Education already agreed that the universities can use the distance-education means until the end of this semester, while in the elementary and preschool levels, there is only the halting the physical classroom sessions for three whole days for the classes with students who’d contracted.  And the Department of Education had devised the system of quarantine, listing all who sat around the contracted student to stay out of school for three whole days, with the rest of the students, coming in the same.

What sort of a psychotic logic is this!  The Department of Education’s agreeing to the universities halting the physical classroom sessions is due to the sudden increase of confirmed cases in the student bodies, not enough vacant dormitories for quarantining to work, to avoid the students who’d been confirmed of contractions to live in the kitchens of the dormitories, to camp out in tents around the campuses of the schools; while the reason why it won’t allow the elementary, middle school students to learn using distant-education means wholly is because of the locations, the schools’ preferences individually, to not impact the learning of the students.  The goal of this has nothing to do with keeping the virus from getting into the local schools, so chaotic, and confusing!

Especially how the students who’d sat around the eight sides of the student who’d been confirmed of contraction getting kept out of school, it’s totally unrealistic in application.  The Department of Education believed that the students would NOT move around during their class time, that they’re all, dummies, sitting in class, not interactive with their fellow classmates, totally, unsound, unreasonable, and only causing the teachers problems in instruction, and the burdens onto the paperwork, adding to the risks of students contracting the virus, and the parents’ worries.  And so, as soon as the nine seats around the contracted rule came out, the Department of Education was cussed at, the FB of the Department of Education, got filled up with the upset messages from parents and students, as well as, instructors too, Taichung stated that they will NOT follow this rule by the Department of Education in any more, both Taipei and Hsinbei said that they will use the rules as only references, Taoyuan followed the rules, and the groups of students from the local schools signed a petition to protest this, and the parents started taking their own children out of school, on “days off from the outbreaks”.

and, here’s, the “nine-seat quarantine” rule that the Department of Education came up with!

the red points are the students who were confirmed of contraction, and the boxes are the students who sat around the students who were confirmed of contraction that needed the quarantine days off…diagram from online

So, this is still, just how, half-assed, the system set up by the government on the defense against the spread of MERS from school children is, this is totally brainless, I mean, the symptoms are now, mild and, without the availabilities of the quick scan means to all who may need, there’s NO way of being absolutely certain, that the virus won’t get from schools, to the home, I mean, it’s not like you can see the virus, in the snot of school children, coming from their noses, and as they wiped their noses off, and then, touch everything around them, is it?  Of course N-O-T.

This still just showed, how the government is, already, at its own wits (uh yeah, as if the DDP is, intelligent enough here???) end, in trying to at least, slow down the spread of MERS-CoV in the country here.

The Masks, the Alcohol, the Separating Boards, the Quick Scan Kits, to This Very Day, the Schools are Still, Fighting Over the Necessities of Resources Needed for the Pandemic

Yep, it’s still, the policies of the CDC, run by the DDP, that’s, GUILTY as charged for this too!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Since the start of the pandemic, the schools are at edge constantly.  As the students are spending long hours in school, and would eat together for lunch, staying in the classroom sessions in the same classes, if someone contracted the virus, then, there’s a high chance that everybody in the class will be, infected too, and so, the schools had been, tightening up its means of defense against the spread of MERS-CoV, hoping, to not be affected or be affected as little as possible by the outbreaks.  And yet, as the epidemic started spreading around locally, the related resources needed for the protection of the students, the schools had fought really hard to obtain, the masks, the sanitizing alcohol, the bleach, the forehead thermometers, to the temperature readers, then, the separation plastic boards for lunch that were needed, getting higher and higher in costs, and, as the schools pleaded, begged, and urged the manufacturers, finally, on the Saturday afternoon before school was to begin on Monday, there were, 1,500 boards available then.

With the middle and high school students getting vaccinated, the more than ninety-percent vaccination rate, along with the pandemic slowing down, finally, the schools are, slowly, returned, back to, normal functioning.

And yet, of late, the daily confirmed contraction rate exceeded into the tens of thousands, with the worsening of the pandemic, the students receiving a confirmed contraction, those in the at-home quarantines, increased too, the school started, running that race against time with the pandemic, are the students and teachers in classes, defined as those “in close contact”, if the student confirmed of contraction had gone to the cram schools, and in contact with other students, making that list in a hurry; after the approvals of at-home quarantine was signed off on, there’s no speedy way to get the list of those who should be in the at-home quarantine out fast enough, although, the lists are now, printed out by the schools individually, but, the schools still had to rush over to the local offices of sanitations to get the rosters approved with a seal, before the lists gets passed to the students, the teachers of the classes.  While, the two quick-scan tests after the three-plus-four at-home quarantines, the students needed to get someone, to get the supplies, because the quick scan kits are now, in shortage.

One of my students is studying in Europe currently, the university he’s studying in provided the free quick-scan kits to the students, if there’s a need, the students can gain access to the quick scan kits quite easily.  As the policies can’t catch up on speed, with the lacking in testing, and going towards coexisting with MERS-CoV, the quick-scan tests will be the standards we use to tell if someone had contracted the virus or not, if the government can provide it at a cheaper cost to us, it can help the pandemic to get under control, to reduce the unknown number of cases that are still, hidden in our, local communities right now.  I hope, that the schools will no longer need to fight over the resources that they needed to defend against the spread of MERS-CoV, to just, focus on educating the students, and, to defend against the spread of MERS-CoV.

Yeah, and all of this, is still wishful thinking, taking from the before examples of how full of itself the DDP government had been (the we’re number one in defending against the spread of MERS from the start of all of this back in…2018 or was it 2019) to the delays of the vaccines, needing the other countries’ generous donations, and now, the lacking of the quick scan kits, and we went from TAIWAN can HELP, to WHO CAN HELP T-A-I-W-A-N!!!

NOBODY that’s, W-H-O!

He Was Unsuccessful in Getting a Female Older Schoolmate to Accept His Love for Her, He’d Started Waving that Knife and Injured Her

Despite how the ANTI-STALKING law’s been signed into effect, and this shit is still, happening here!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The first-year student from Shu-Der Technical University in Kaohsiung, Lin had a crush on a sophomore older female schoolmate, two evenings ago after an unsuccessful attempt to get her to love him, Lin told the woman that he wanted to accompany her and a friend of hers back to the dorm, she’d turned him down again, Lin became emotional, started waving a craft knife around, injured the back of the neck of the older female schoolmate he was crushing on, and her arms too; as the police arrived, they’d escorted the injured female student to the nursing units to get her injuries treated, found Lin in his dorm room, with the knife, with the bloody clothes he was wearing; as Lin was taken in and interrogated, he’d claimed he had amnesia over what happened as his professions of love to the woman wasn’t accepted.

Based off of understanding, Lin and the older female schoolmate belonged to the same extracurricular group, at around half past midnight last night, Lin was suspected of being impacted by the woman’s turning him down and objecting his offer to walk her back to her dorm, used the knife and attacked the woman, the female student started bleeding from the neck, and it’d thrilled the female friend she had with her, along with someone else who was out exercising, and they’d immediately notified the police, other than taking the injured female student to the hospital, the police arrested Lin in his dorm, Lin claimed that he’d swallowed several dozen of sleeping pills, was taken to the hospital, under police custody, he’d regained consciousness yesterday, and the police interviewed him, and charged him on attempted murder and assault, sent to the Chiaotou D.A.’s Office for processing.

The Shu-Der Technical University stated, that after the incident, the families of the female student already found their legal counsel, the school worried that the events may cause trauma to the female student, and they will offer the services of counseling and professional social worker to help.

And this, is how, it worked, when you turn a man down, be careful ladies, because, nobody knows if the LOSERS (b/c that’s what you all are!) you’d turned down will react violent, especially when they are, ill-prepared for the rejections that you handed to them, and, this is how well the laws protect us women, the law does, DIDDILY squat!  So, look like we’ll all be, carrying that bottle of pepper spray, that TASER, inside our separate, purses, to PROTECT ourselves from this SORT of SHITS then, because, like in this case, the help came, sure, but, the woman was still, injured.

Halting the Classroom Sessions is Only Taking Care of the “Symptoms”, the Schools Should Increase the Defenses Against MERS-CoV

Written by a middle school principal, on the schools about to resume physically again soon!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Department of Education had loosened up the rules of halting the school sessions due to MERS-CoV, and many of the local cities, counties also, adjusted the rules and regulations regarding this, to the point of allowing the schools to decide independently of the government, the offices of education.

In time, the country is making it look like we’re, headed towards coexisting with the virus now, like we have enough medications, to quickly and effectively, treat MERS-CoV, so we’d become, confident, no need to live in fear.  But, there are the parents who’d worried, the upcoming fieldtrips being safe and secure enough or not, and, if they pulled their children out, the fees already paid are nonrefundable, and the kids would have one less activities to do, the parents are deadlocked here.

Actually, there’s a need for the consensus of reaching the means of decisions of stopping the school sessions that required the units of local sanitation departments, and the head of the local department of education to decide.  While currently, most cases had been known, after the parents tell the schools about it, and, causes time elapsed for the secondhand information, the schools are already, overwhelmed with the pressures of getting the process of reporting the cases to the CDC, to quarantine the classes.  While the cases are scattered around lightly, this can be managed, but, if in the future, with the cases of confirmed contractions on the rise, in the lacking of provision of medical capabilities, as the school gets the edicts from the CDC, there would be more time elapsed.  While, the quick scan swabs used, due to the lacking of funds, the schools’ supplies are only equipped to deal with the minority number of cases, and the allocation of these resources, the provision of these materials, are all reliant on the related government offices to help.

Preventing being better than treatment as stated, from before, the measures we took, whether it be setting up the separating boards, the enforcements of the people masking up, taking the temperatures, the sanitizing of our hands, it’s all on the preventive front, and, we’re all a part of this, we should not slack off, just because the classroom sessions had halted, and mistakenly believe, that we don’t need to take the preventive measures ourselves.  Nobody wants to contract the virus, let alone the children, like how a parent stated, “even if there are thousands of cases that were new every day in the future, I still don’t’ want my own young to be one of them.”, as we hadn’t reached the heights of the outbreaks yet, it’s best, we take all of these, preventive measures, to help the parents feel a little less, worried.

And so, we should NOT slack off, because we’re looking at a group of younger generations, who aren’t vaccinated, because none had been developed yet, not safe for children that young to use, which puts them at risk, of becoming carriers, and, if the school sessions are resuming, and not enough measure of protections had been taken, or implemented, then, these children might well become, carriers, that are going to, spread the epidemic out, to out of control proportions, and so, we still need to take the measures of sanitizing, washing our hands, masking up like we’d been doing already, seriously.

The Man with a Reputable Status in the Local Community is Abusive Toward His Wife & Young Son

Because the family is powerful locally, that’s why, the woman interpreted the police’s leaving as having to do with how they feared the family, but it wasn’t, because the police had come and knocked on the door, and nobody responded, and there was a traffic accident, which they took to be more pressing, that’s why they’d, left, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The woman, Wang remarried with a young child, in the two years, the mother and son had been abused by her husband, Nien, after the Changwha D.A.’s Office charged Nien with physical assault two days ago, Wang opened up to the press about what had happened in her marriage, other than having her cell phone controlled, because of how the family is powerful, the neighbors didn’t DARE say a thing, although she’d gone to the police on accusations of abuse, but the police came, and heard the side of the story from the Nien family, then left.

Nien’s uncle is a former deputy of the city council, well known for stealing and selling the gravel concrete, back in 1996, he’d been charge and sent to Ludao, and used the opportunity of being transported to the external hospitals, made his escape to China, and died in China ultimately.

Wang accused, that as she started dating Nien, they were very close, they married six years ago, but two years ago, Nien became a different person, had physically abused her and her young son, and demanded that she never leaves his sight, that when she goes to the bathrooms, she’d needed to leave the door open so he could see her, he took her cell phone, and, deleted her contact, severed her from contacts of the outside world.

The local substation stated, that the footage of him kicking the young boy was from this March, Wang claimed that she’d called the police on the evening of July 28th, two officers came, and heard the family’s side, then left, and as they checked the records, the officers knocked on the door, but no one responded, and there was a traffic call to the officers, that’s why they’d, left so soon.

Wang called another time on July 29th, the substation immediately took the case, and that day, the mother and son were placed away, but, the first time the domestic violence call came, there were, the improper means of handling it, and the police will reprimand the officers responsible.

And, you can see, how it’s easy, for this abused woman, to attribute why the police didn’t come to her rescue as such, because the family is powerful, with ties in the local community’s political realms, but, it actually, isn’t that the police didn’t take the case, but because they went to the home, and nobody answered, and there was another more pressing traffic call that’s more urgent.

The Students are Copying the Scripts of the Squid Games, Worrying the Parents

Like that research proposal I’d written up for my methods lab???  How the number of hours of violence in the media viewed by the children can, be correlated to their acting up more violently, and now, this is a “proof” of that correlational study I’d, proposed for my methods class, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

To Celebrate Halloween in the Elementary School Years, the Game of “Bloody Bobeep” is Played, “I Blew Your Head Off” Became an Everyday Dialogue Among the Students

The Korean soap, “The Squid Games” became a huge hit in Taiwan, and it’d become, the choice of costumes for young children for Halloween too here; on the eve of Halloween in an elementary school, the school officials dressed themselves up in pink as the killers, with the prop guns, shooting the victims, with school-age children watching them; there were also school instructors who’d noted seeing the elementary school-age children playing the game of “blood bo-beep” during the breaktime at school, using the paper gun they have in their hands, to “blow up” the losers, and, all of these became worrisome to the parents, that violence had, made its way into the school campus, and they’d begun worrying that this might lead to modeling behaviors, and even, violence on the school campuses too.

Uses of Child-Appropriate Materials as a “Cover” for the Games of Murder

“The Squid Games” used the children’s topics to wrap up the games of murder, because of how innovative this idea is, it’d, become trending across the globe, but it’s brought about the effects of modeling behaviors too, there were a lot of cases of teens who’d modeled after the violent storyline and injured others already internationally; some of the U.S. and European schools worried that the students will model after the violent behaviors in the shows, and passed the prohibitions of the attires now.  And now, the “Squid Games” had found its way into the elementary schools here too, “You’re already dead”, “I’d blown you up already!”, etc., etc., etc., became the regular words of exchange that elementary school age children shared.

Children Started Worrying that “Someone I Know Might Get Murdered”

An instructor testified, that there were, a few handful of children who’d watched the programming at home with their own parents, and, took what they saw on T.V. into the games they play in-between the classes, by words of children’s mouths, they’d even started, humming the Chucky theme song, if there were students who’d moved when they weren’t supposed to, then, the other students would pick up the paper guns, and start shooting them down, it’d made her have a ton of headaches over this; there were also careless elementary school instructors who’d played the footages of the show in class, until students went home and told their parents, “I’m so afraid that someone I know will die”, the parents filed a complaint to the school, that was when the school realized, that “something wasn’t, quite right”.

模仿玩「魷魚遊戲」 比利時小學生暴力懲罰同伴|秦綾謙|FOCUS全球新聞 20211011 – YouTube

on how elementary school children in Belgium punished their own peers, from the news here off of YouTube, and yes the link works!!!

While a certain elementary up north on the eve of Halloween, played that game of “bloody bopeep” on the school campus.  The principal was interviewed, and told, that the activities were sponsored by the PTA, hoping to share the times with their own young, and that he’d dressed up as Captain America too, and played the role of the “protector” of the students as well; he’d stated clearly, that at the moment, “I didn’t think this through quite enough”, that he will work hard, to prevent this sort of similar situation from recurring.

The Parents Called Out to the Enforcement of Bringing about Awareness of the Ratings of the Programming

There were the first grade children’s parents who’d told, that they’d not allowed their young to watch “The Squid Games”, but the painting that the young children made was the scenes from the “Bloody Bopeep” and “Jumping Off a Glass Bridge”, and told him that the losers of the game played in school will get “bang-bang, and then, die!”, then, after the victims died, thy will have crosses painted on them, the parent worried that the young will take violence as a norm of life.  He’d believed, that it would be next to impossible to ban the kids from using the internet, that the government should set up the barricades, to set up the ratings accordingly, and to enforce the education on the matter too.

The Department of Education Hoped to Increase the Virtues, the Morale of the Media

Last year, the “Blue Whale Games” with the hidden themes of self-mutilation and exploitation by sexual means, infiltrated into the Taiwanese school campuses, the Department of Education had sent out three separate warnings to get the local government, to let the school note to be careful; and now, the scripts from “The Squid Games” infiltrated into the elementary school campuses, the Department of Education also calls out to the various levels of schools should pay strict attention to the games that are ill-fitted for the developments of young children to play, the animated feature films, the movies, the soaps that are, flowing around school, and enforce the morality of the media, to help the students differentiate between what’s appropriate, and what’s, not.

The C.E.O. from the Parents’ Group League, Peng stated, that the students in the elementary and the middle school years couldn’t differentiate what’s real and what’s fake, that it would take children at least into their high school years to be able to understand what the society is about, and if the parents lead by modeling the goings on in the T.V. programs, then the parents need to reevaluate their own behaviors too; sh4e’d believed, that anything done in school, including play, needed to be in accordance to the morale of education.

And so, this, is the effects of violence in media, on your school age children (still not mine, ‘cuz???  Oh yeah, don’t gone me one!), and, because violence is, everywhere we look, on T.V., on the WWW, on those, billboards you come across from your ways to work, on your drive home from work, etc., etc., etc., it’s impossible, to keep your kids from getting, exposed, and, this situation is just, really bad, because, the parents are still, too god damn, way too, mother @#$%ING (all out of “cuss words” here!) clueless, and, your children are losing their virginities (psychological kind here!), everyday, when they played these violent games at school, under ADULT supervision, because, those teachers aren’t babysitters, they educate your young, and so please, do NOT make their lives, harder, as children are getting a hell of a lot more difficult, to educate by the generations, because they’re all, smarter, smarter, smarter, as you @$#$ING adults are, getting DUMBER still!

Mask Mandates for Back-to-School in the U.S.………

I honestly, don’t have a CLUE (no really, I’m, totally, CLUELESS here!) how this is an issue in the U.S.?

Masking mandates for back-to-school in the U.S., why, with a huge chunk of “you guys” in the States who are, anti-vaxxers, unlike how people like me, (Asians???) who are, fighting, for, the limited resources of vaccines available to us?, fighting against the mask mandates for your children’s back-to-school learning sessions…

Masking up, it’s NOT for the sakes of taking away your freedom, “children”, it’s for the safety of everybody, because how would I know, that this other kid sitting next to me in class, does or does not have MERS-CoV?  I mean, and you DO realize, how now, there are, the asymptomatic contractions right?  As the virus is still, evolving, WAY ahead of all of us here…

And, these masking mandates in some states, are seen as illegal, uh, how is that possible?  I mean, you would think, that nobody wants to, expose her/himself in danger’s way, and, by going out in the public places (as the bans of not going out is getting lifted, due to how the majority of the states’ populations had already had your vaccinations, save for your, anti-vaxxers out there!), you are, easily exposed, and unless you have one of those, sanitation tunnels set up, leading up into your houses that you need to, walk into, with the spritzing of sanitation fluids (i.e. 99% concentrated alcohol, Clorox, etc., etc., etc. ), to finally, get sanitized before you enter into your homes, there’s, NO sure way, to be absolutely certain, that you didn’t, bring the virus home.

And, yet with the epidemic still high, there are the governments of some states, that are, issuing down the mandates of “no need to wear masks in class or at work”?  You realize, how the virus is, passed along by saliva, by contact with infected individuals’ bodily fluids, right?

So what’s gonna happen if there’s an asymptomatic professor, that spits in your face (not intentionally, of course!), but, as the professor gets too enthusiastic about what s/he is, lecturing on, you never know…………and, you bring that virus home, and, guess what’s gonna, happen?

You do the math there, why don’t ya!

What is Taken Away from Your Education?

Lessons we learned, from school, from our own, experiences in life, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Recently I’d made the speeches at the schools, as the speech ended, a parent led two children to before me.  “Professor, I was your student, do you still remember me?”  This was every instructor’s nightmare, I’d, worked really hard, to think back on all the students, and just, couldn’t, recall her name; but I’d still smiled and told her, “let me think!”, as she’d heard me say this, her smile did not fade, she’s not, disappointed one bit, but her second-grade daughter looked up at her innocently, “Mom, your teacher can’t remember you!”

I felt very awkward after hearing, before I could reply, she’d immediately told her child, “Do you know how many students the professor’s had?  How can she remember every one, but, so long as I remember her!”, then, she’d, started speaking of her middle school careers, that with the problems she’d, faced in life then, how I’d, given her the advices she’d needed, “because you’d, counseled me, teacher, so I will, never forget you, as I saw the flyer on the seminar, I was so excited to come, to thank you.” as she’d told me, I still, can’t quite, remember her, but, I’d felt, very touched by her words.

The following day, a student used the communication app to contact me, this particular student had been, hurt by a certain teacher, he’d come back to me to tell me about what happened, to seek out my counsel, it took me sometime, but I’d, accompanied him, helped him out; back then, I’d, encouraged him: you need to turn what happened to you, into your driving force, if there’s a chance, you must, help those who’d been hurt like you had.  Back then he’d told me, that he will, work hard, to become a teacher who can, help his students.  In his final year of high school, he wrote me that with his grades, there was, NO chance he will ever be a school teacher, so, he was, willing, to become, a serviceman, to fight to protect the country.

And now, many years afterwards, he’d, shared with me everything he’d weathered through in the armed services, and he’d, mentioned what happened to him again back in middle school, and stressed to me, that even though he wasn’t, highly ranked, he will use his past as a teacher, to NEVER make the mistakes his middle school instructor had made.

After I’d read, although I’d felt glad, but, I couldn’t help but feel: that the first woman told me, “so long as I remember you!”.  It symbolized, I don’t’ need your affirmations from your memories, but I will remember, that was, the demands that one made of, one’s own, characters, to never forget to be, thankful.  While the second student, couldn’t forget about the shame, but he’d not, selected, to take revenge, instead, he’d, turned his shame into something he could, learn from, to remind himself, to NEVER shame another like he’d been, shamed.  Think on his, how many people we will meet, how many things we can, encounter, in our, lifetimes!

Who remembered us, it isn’t, that important, what’s important is who we remembered?  Well, it’s, not that important either, the important being WHY we remember who or what we remember?  Those that happened, those whom we remembered, what were their, influenced on us?  From these two students, I saw the choices of attitude, how they’d, chosen to make themselves feel happy, how by choosing to forgive, it’d, given him peace, to use the past as a mirror to reflect, to have a life without regrets, what, will you, choose?

And so, this, is something worth pondering on, what, do you remember when you graduated?  I’m sure, that it’s not the course load, the books, the materials, or even what you’d made on your exams, it’s the experience of learning, of accumulating the knowledge, of the lessons that life teaches us that we will, carry with us from here on out.

The Assistant to the Coach of a Youth Baseball League Molested Over Ten Members of the Team

And no, I still did NOT make this SHIT up, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

There were cases of sexual molestation that occurred in an elementary school and middle school youth baseball team, the eighteen-year-old assistant coach’s rape on a total of ten victims, the detectives, the social services department, as well as the Department of Education set up a specialty squad to investigate in secrecy, after they’d inquired all the students on the team, yesterday, they’d charged Chen, the assistant coach with obstructions to sexual freedom.

“The assistant coach molested me!”, during the middle of March this year, the primary coach of the team asked the students “do you have any comments or questions?”, one of the students raised up his hands, and others followed, and stated, that they were all, sexually molested too, and that, was when the victim students learned, that they were not, the only one who was victimized, the coach believed that this was serious, he’d immediately notified the authorities, and, as the investigations continued, the D.A. and the Department of Education found, that there were, a total of ten children who fell victim.

The victim students told the D.A., that during January and February of this year, at the dormitories of the team, at the assistant coach’s home, in the hotels, Chen the assistant coach had fellated, had anal sex, and, fondled them.  After the case bust open, Chen wrote out a confession, apologizing to his students and the students’ families.

The D.A. found out, that Chen, the assistant coach, because he was an adult, had sexually molested and raped six students, and, after he came of age, he’d forced his students to have sex with him, seven times, and forcefully sexually molested them three time, sexually harassed them twice, the victims were mostly still in elementary school.  As the D.A. went to conduct a search at Chen’s residence, they’d found there was a collection of kiddie porn in his collection from online, and, on the fifth day upon being notified of Chen’s bad behaviors, the D.A. believed that he was at flight risk, and that he may destroy the evidence, asked the courts to take him into custody, which the courts allowed for.

And so, this is a man with priors, and yet, god knows HOW many young victims had there been already, and this time, someone decided to speak up (finally!), and thus, end this losers rape, sexual molestation on the younger children.
