This is the third article I have written comparing marriage to Hernán Cortés’ conquest of an impregnable Aztec city.

As I have taught school for many years and raised 11 children in the school system, I have seen many programs come and go. Educators are always looking for a new way to help children learn.

I am one of those teachers. I want my children to be successful, and I learn from other teachers, but when it comes to changing the entire system, I wonder if we are looking “beyond the mark.”

Lately I have been thinking about my heritage and how lucky I have been to have parents and grandparents who left a clear path to follow. They were devout Christians who came from the roots of strong pioneer stock. You know the kind who worked every day of their lives to build for the future.
