Kids These Days of the Day: Four classmates from a Long Island’s Riverhead High School were suspended for one day after they created a “hazard” by Tebowing in the middle of the school’s main hallway.
Tebowing involves kneeling and bowing in the style of Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow’s signature post-touchdown gesture.
“It was more than a religious thing,” said suspended student Connor Carroll. “There was some of that involved obviously, because he prays. I guess it was basically like a moment of silence.”
He went on to say that the school didn’t warn him and his brother Tyler against tebowing in the hallway, despite their claim to the contrary. The other two students later had their suspension rescinded after the school admitted they weren’t warned.
Administrators say some 40 students have been Tebowing in the hall every day for a week, and the Internet fad had become a “distraction.”
“This is not about religious discrimination,” Riverhead School District Superintendent Nancy Carney told the New York Post. “It is about being sure kids are able to get to class on time and keeping the kids safe and orderly.”
Carney disputes Connor’s claim that their was no pushing or shoving or other safety issues involved. A video posted to YouTube (below) appears to side with Carney.

And here’s the next son-defends-lesbian-moms video we predict will be going viral.
At a South Carolina book signing, an 8-year-old boy named Elijah whispered to Bachmann, “My mom is gay and she doesn’t need fixing.” Bachmann responded with a blank expression, then waved to him as he runs away. The person who filmed the event told Chicago Now that Elijah’s mom had been standing in line to speak to Bachmann herself, but decided she was too nervous. But Elijah insisted that they stay so he could give Bachmann the message himself.
Good job, Elijah!Source thedailybeast.com
Such a powerful & inspirational video, albeit sad.
The unfortunate reality is that there are millions of people going through the same thing everyday.
There may be people out there waiting for you to give up or who are constantly tearing you down, but just remember that there are a million other reasons why you are here in this world and have been given life.
Life’s too short but there are many people out there spending their limited time creating hate and tearing someone apart, ultimately costing someone’s life.
There are a lot of people who you could talk to about this and there are many people around you going through the same thing, some even closer than you think (and whom you wouldn’t think would be a victim).
But just remember, it will get better for you. It might not be in the near future, but it is there. After all those years of suffering, use your experience to strive for the better; Channel all of that energy and prove those people wrong, you are going to come out stronger.
You have a million reasons to be here.

“I want to marry you because you’re the first person I want to look at when I wake up in the morning, and the only one I want to kiss goodnight. Because the first time that I saw your hands, I couldn’t imagine not being able to hold them. But mainly, when you love someone as much as I love you, getting married is the only thing left to do.”
