Quote of the moment:
A horse is a horse, of course, of course, unless you're in France. Then it gets... weird.
We live in an age where kids get award pretty much just for showing up to school.
But why is the label so bland as to be "participant?"
Everyone has things about them that we can celebrate instead of just calling them a participant, even if those things still don't matter at all.
I figure we can do wonders for childrens' self-esteem with these grade-school awards for real, if useless, achievements!
