Where There Is Sadness, Let Me Sow Joy

 

Author’s Note: This is the sixth (and last) of a series of articles based on the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi beginning, “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.”

St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis of Assisi

I am the music teacher in an elementary school that serves approximately 500 children. Few people think of a school as a microcosm of society but that is exactly what it is.

Every day I see children whose emotions run the gamut from intense joy to deep sadness.

I see children who have lost one or both parents, some who have never lived with a birth parent but are lovingly cared for by other relatives or a foster parent. I see children from homes where parents attempt to be the best parents on earth. I see children from homes where parents think nothing of having fierce arguments in front of their children on a regular basis. I see children from homes where someone may not be happy that there is a child as part of the family.

Couple charged with child abuse & contributing to delinquency of a minor

 

cpdOn April 9, 2009, Jennifer Seadler and Jeremy Seadler were both charged with contributing to delinquency and child abuse and neglect.   Jennifer Seadler’s bond was set at $6,000 while Jeremy Seadler’s  bond was set at $2,000.

An investigation by Detective Demone Chestnut revealed that Jennifer and Jeremy Seadler provided alcoholic beverages to a 16 year old female juvenile, a former Northeast High School student, while playing a card game.  Jennifer Seadler was at one time the math teacher of the juvenile; this supports the fact that both adults knew the age of the juvenile.  The investigation uncovered there were  two other adults that the juvenile had never met who were also playing the game.  The juvenile did not play well during the game, therefore she had to take shots of Ciroc Vodka.  Shortly after consuming the alcohol, the juvenile became very sick and vomited.  The juvenile was sent home without being provided any medical attention. «Read the rest of this article»
