New Mexico State University

March 14th, 2013

3-14-13On my ride to the New Mexico State University campus, I met with Assistant Principal Lorraine Paz of Las Cruces High School. She and I talked about the importance of all of us having an awareness of issues students have to deal with on a day to day basis. In a bad situation, even a good kid can change quickly and the importance for a parent to watch over their children is especially important from 5th grade on. “That’s when the fun begins,” I’ve heard countless times from educators.
I love talking with kids of all ages about the two issues I am riding for. Conversation is healthy. Two very important things happen. One, education about the issues being discussed takes place, and two, healing  takes place for the individual. Keeping issues bottled up inside does no one any good.
