Creative Punishments Of A Judge

Judge Michael Cicconetti believes in making punishment that fits the crime committed.

His creative punishment of crimes had resulted the repeat offense lower than the national average of other courts.

A good example of a creative punishment was when Victoria Bascom was given a choice of going to jail for 30 days or walk for 30 miles for her crime of not paying her cab fare.

The creative punishment had the teenager to walk for 30 miles that probably left a lasting memory to avoid repeated crime.

There were many other creative punishments that the judge gave.

His dedication to ensure the offenders would have a lasting effect for the crimes committed that resulted most of them not to repeat their mistakes.

He was really like a father who gave the right punishment to discipline his children that led to the right future behaviours.

Inspired To Be A Firefighter

When Anissa Cruz was a little girl, she was trapped in her house when it caught fire.

Her mum and her were saved by Stephen McNally, the firefighter.

Her dad did not survive but the brave act by the firefighter had inspired her to become a firefighter.

The gratitude for being saved had left a lasting impression in her memory.

She thanked the brave act of the firefighter and she became a firefighter because of him.

Kids can be inspired regardless of how young they may be and Anissa was certainly inspired by the firefighter who had saved her.

Saving A little Girl With Leukemia

Mike Laureano saved a little girl from leukemia when he was a match to save the little girl.

When the organisation called him regarding the donation, he agreed to the donation without much hesitation.

It was indeed a great deed to save a young girl from her suffering and possible death.

It must have felt great to know that the girl he saved was doing well.

His good deed is a good example for our young generation of how they can make a difference to others when they have the ability to do so.

Adoption Of Four Kids

Rob Scheer had a terrible childhood with lots of abusive treatment from his biological father.

In the videoclip, he mentioned that the death of his parents was considered the greatest gift he could ever have.

We can only imagine how terrible he was treated by his parents.

Video Source

He had a wonderful relationship with a man but it would be impossible to have children of their own since both are men.

They were able to adopt a total of four kids and give them the childhood that he never had.

They had a hard time to get the adoption because they were gays.

We may not be ready to accept a gay due to the fact it was against the nature and norm.

As a parent and educator, it was great that they were able to nurture their children with the right values and give them the love they needed.

Long Marching In Singapore Army

The recruits in the Singapore Army would need to march 24 km.

It is a long march but it is necessary.

During World War 2 in Singapore, the prisoners marched around 24 km from Padang to Changi Prison.

Video Source

The reverse march was done to show their respect and gratitude as well as they are motivated to fight for the country when they see how far Singapore has developed.

All physically fit young men would need to go through army training for two years to learn how to defence the country.

Getting our modern young men to train and learn important values can develop strong resilient to cope with future challenges in their lives.

Kids always have lots of questions about different things around them.

They may often see traffic policemen moving around on their motorbikes to monitor the traffic condition.

They may also encounter situation when lots of traffic policemen conducting investigation during an accident.

The traffic police in the videoclip tried to answer all the commonly asked questions.

A nice videoclip for the curious minds of our kids.

Chinese New Year

25 January 2020 is the 1st day of Chinese New Year.

It is the year of the rat this year.

It is a great tradition that has been celebrated since ancient time in China by Chinese.

The eve of Chinese New Year would have the union dinner where everyone in the family would have a meal together regardless of how busy they may be.

Other common traditions like wearing of red clothes for good fortunes as well as giving out red packets with money to young children.

Chinese would also exchange mandarin oranges that would symbolise prosperity and good fortune.

It is indeed an important festival for all Chinese all over the world.

The videoclip above would share more about the story of Chinese New Year as well as other traditions.

Acceptance Of Stepmom

It is definitely hard for a child had to live under the shelter with a stepparent due to the psychological impact and the doubt of genuine love.

I agree that there are stepchildren who would willingly accept their stepmom while some find it hard to accept the change.

The videoclip below is about a teenage girl who had difficulty accepting her stepmom.

Video Source

When her dad was hospitalised, she was extremely fearful of losing him.

Her stepmom comforted her that led her to open her heart of resistance.

There are many stories of wonderful relationships of stepparents with their stepchildren.

It may not be easy to accept the love of stepparent so stepparent would need to take the step forward to gain the acceptance from their stepchildren.

Regardless of whether the acceptance would be successful after years of trying, the effort to gain acceptance gives a chance to a possible future relationship.

Importance Of A Healthy Diet

The importance of a healthy diet can be ignored by some elderly people because they may feel that life is short so they want to enjoy every moment especially food.

It is hard for them to control their diet but the love and concern from the loved ones may give them the discipline to do so.

The videoclip below is about a boy who learnt about the importance of good diet and monitoring of high blood pressure when his grandfather was hospitalised because of unhealthy diet.

Video Source

The love from his grandson would definitely inspire his grandfather to lead a better lifestyle.

Good diet can really play an important part of a healthy body.

Am I An Idiot

I was crossing the pedestrian crossing today.

Someone stepped on the back of my shoe and I naturally turned to see who had stepped on my shoe.

The man scolded me that I was not walking straight and he was trying to dodge me for some time.

He scolded me an idiot after that.

Image Source

I did not scold him for stepping on my shoe and walked away even after being scolded as an idiot.

I really did not know that I was not walking straight especially I was not drunk.

I guess when something like this happen even without my students around, it is the right thing to do by not getting into an argument.

I would often reprimand kids for getting into an argument or a fight so I should not do it myself but I do feel that I was unfairly treated by the man who scolded me when he was in the wrong.

Image Source

Bible did tell us to seek peace instead of strife.

I guess it is the right thing to do regardless of whether I am in the right or wrong by not getting into an argument or fight especially I am an educator.

My wife also reminded me that the incident happened near my school so it would probably be bad for my reputation if something does happen because I reacted to the rude man.

This post is just to pour out a bit of my anger over what had happened.

Thanks for reading this if you did.
