A Woman to Admire – Part 2

Yesterday you met Teri Pinney and learned what type of person she is…now I’m going to repeat a quote that she issued which tells it exactly like it is! As she spoke about the growing need to be realistic about the problems that exist in our schools, Teri said, “My goal is to see students treated as individuals…people with different capabilities and different talents…people who should be appreciated for who they are – and not how well we can jam a square peg into a round hole.”  This, to my way of thinking, is an admirable goal. All too often we lose the students who dance to a different drummer, but without creative minds, minds that think or function differently, we could also lose the writers of tomorrow, the artists, the musicians and numerous others who might have changed the world had they had the chance.

I also believe in giving the voters a choice. For far too long we’ve been segregated into groups labeled “Republican” or “Democrat” and we’ve voted a party instead of a person. Let’s vote for the students this time. Let’s vote for progress instead of the same old, same old… Let’s at least put an Independent on the ballot and give voters a choice.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
