There’s a saying that goes something like this: “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can feed himself for life.”

Today, I would like to add to that: Show an adolescent a parody with a dead fish and he may bring it to school.




The articles and comments in Rebecca Writes relate to living in this crazy world. Articles about being a parent and grandparent to traveling to relationships to education to health and wellness to being a decent human being — and beyond.
