What names to call the bs reporters on the fake news network? Or did I teach them how to be loving towards family? How to be safe with firearms or knives? Did I teach them how to use the tool correctly and then correct them for getting it out and not putting it back or did I just blow my top because it was a long day? Did I teach them the Golden rule by telling them or showing them how I live it? What did I teach my children today? Keep your head on a swivel and stay safe -DeltaWhiskey
