I created HEALTHY-KIDS.INFO for students who require some extra thought and planning to attend school safely and successfully. I promote collaboration among schools, families, health professionals, businesses, organizations and policy makers. Let me know how I can help you.
Every year to mark the anniversary of the March 18, 1937 Texas School Explosion, I salute inspiring individuals who show extraordinary responsibility and inspirational leadership for school and community safety. They live and work by a standard of excellence and integrity — often in the face of denial, willful blindness and indifference about hazards and unsafe conditions.
One lesson of the 1937 tragedy is that we can't take it for granted that local officials or elected representatives make community safety or health a priority. A safe quality environment often depends on champions with an exceptional sense of responsibility.
Read the stories of Heroes 2004- 2016. They are inspiring for a combination of personal qualities and qualifications beyond credentials. They promote the values that build and continuously strengthen a culture of responsibility for safety and continuous improvement.
The world endures solely by virtue of the breath of school children. (Talmud)
