WARNING!!

You are about to be exposed to a highly dangerous and contagious phrase. These words, when used together in a sentence, can be toxic to others, and cause damage that can take years to repair. Hold your breath, grit your teeth, and read the phrase to yourself. Upon exposure to this phrase in a school, you must immediately dispose of it in your mind, blocking it from any hopes and dreams you have for kids and yourself!

You will hear it, but must do everything possible to build immunity in order to spare your mind from being consumed by its message. The phrase is meant to keep you comfortable, and to accept the status quo. It is meant to keep you from growing! Are you ready....here it is....
