I live in Georgia and am a grandmother to one grandson.
We can reverse years of damage to our bodies by deciding to raise our standards for ourselves, then living differently. Old wounds heal, injuries repair, and the whole system improves with just a few changes in what we put into our bodies and how we move them.
Things aren't too bad on the school front right now. Switching to common core has a lot of people in an uproar. You know how teachers love change (snort). I don't think all of the changes are so bad, but I'm definitely in the minority.
