Praying for students and teachers

This morning close to 4:30am I drove by Heritage Middle and High School and prayed for the Ringgold and Heritage students and faculty, who in just hours would be sharing the Heritage facility.

My students are Generals!  They love their school and have great pride about the facility they are blessed to have.

Ringgold students, I know-and rightfully so, are also proud of their tradition and their home just miles away.

But due to the tornado their schools are uninhabital so they will be sharing the facility half day.

I prayed for peace.  I prayed for flexibility.  I prayed for normalcy, and most of all I prayed for a continued show of cooperation and good will among the two schools.
