Wow!
 
Marine Corps boot camp is definitely tough ... but it's not exactly rocket science. Pfc. Rolando Florenz should know; he completed his doctorate in aerospace engineering from the University of Michigan in December 2013 before coming to boot camp a month later. Florenz will march across the main parade deck here Aprill 11, 2014, as the honor graduate of Platoon 2026, Golf Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion.

We ask recruits currently in training why they decided to endure 13 weeks of boot camp to earn the title of United States Marine. Here’s what Florenz said:

“I wanted to join for the challenge. I believe I owe a debt to the generation before. I don't believe that freedom comes free."

That is one way of looking at mankind and our affect on the Earth and each other.
 
Via a Huffington Post piece entitled "Everything Wrong With Humanity, In One Short Animation."

Apparently, this came out in 2012.

It seems worthwhile to include the link below. The report deserves its own post, but I'm presuming that the news is no longer much of a surprise to anyone who has been following the news anytime over the last few decades.

Very Cool!
 
I love hearing what inspires others when it comes to homeschool science! So, this week I wanted to share with you all thoughts on teaching this subject from some of my favorite blogging ladies. Here are my favorite quotes from the post:  

I tell ya, the excitement I see during our science lessons is what keeps me motivated as their teacher! Cindy's enthusiasm for sharing science with her students made me want to come sit at her table for a bit.

I love teaching science, particularly when students discover new joys in nature and make new discoveries. I agree with Eva, watching your children make new discoveries is one of the main perks of teaching science!

Science was one subject we could share as a family, weaving it throughout our week and not just during official school time. Barb is right, learning about science doesn't have to end when the books close!

I trust that you will glean a nugget or two of inspiration from these ladies! Special thanks to +Cindy West, +Eva Varga, and +Barb McCoy for sharing their thoughts this month.
