My family and I had the pleasure, today, of seeing one of our students, Cody Frieschlag, in a play, downtown, at the Lookingglass Theater. "Waging Peace" was about a group of students from two schools who were involved in an altercation at a basketball game. The students had a detention together and were forced to do an assignment involving "waging peace".
We, truly, enjoyed seeing the performance, which was written, as well as acted, by the kids. Seeing kids' perspectives on how we can, each in our own way, wage peace, was a heartwarming feeling for me. The positive perspectives and efforts of students like those in the play are so refreshing and revitalizing!
To Cody: Congratulations!! Outstanding work! I know you had to put in a ton of time and effort to put on the terrific performances you and the rest of the cast accomplished.
