    What kind of gun do you think he might be pretending to hold? Definitely not a Barrett 50 cal. Just kidding. It's an MP 5 (silenced version).

    Kidding aside, I'm impressed he is attempting to give some sort of historical perspective to kids who were just becoming aware of life around them 10 years ago. While you and I can probably tell where we were on 11-22-63 or 12-8-80, some of these kids don't even remember the OJ trial or the riots in LA in 1992, definitely not the riots of 1965 or '68.

    In the classroom, the only person who gets older each year is the teacher.

    Mike... I think it is always interesting to observe and contemplate what you view...
    I did not give it a second thought when I looked at it... now that you made that observation... it made me look at the picture in a different light... thank you for the observation and reminder to take my time and contemplate and think about what I see.
    Who knows... maybe it does mean something...

    Normally, in school (and I worked at a high school for a long time, hats are not allowed indoors. I notice none of the kids have hats on in class.

    It's just an observation, it doesn't mean anything.

    Ill start it...

    How do you feel about the killing of Osama bin Laden?
    Im thankful that he will not be able to kill again.

    Do you think it was justified, why or why not?
    Im not sure... since so many innocent men, woman and children died in Obama's pursuit to get Bin Laden, its hard to say if it was justified...

    Was there another way the U.S. could have handled this?
    Im sure there were others ways... but I am not qualified to say if there could have been a better way
    How do you think al Qaeda will respond?
    They will be motivated to seek out as many avenues to kill us and at the same time, minimize damage to themselvess. I think every time we advance, they try to counter our advance to hurt us.

    May I suggest that Tokay high students post answers to these questions( on this thread) and debate this publicly instead of privately in class where one teacher acts as a moderator... that would be very educational.. and less bias
