Dear Abby: Seizure in classroom prompts lesson on reaction for kids

posted: 01/30/2015 1:43 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: Last week, I had a seizure in front of my fourth-grade students. This has never happened to me before, so I had never spoken to my students about such a thing. I want to write them and their families a letter expressing my apologies, thanking them for their kind thoughts and giving basic advice on how to handle a seizure. Is this appropriate? If so, how do I start the letter?

Columnists: Lost words, lost worlds

posted: 01/28/2015 3:08 a.m. Comment 1

It's a slim little book that had a powerful impact as this country and the rest of the world hovered on the edge of war in 1939: Mrs. Miniver by Jan Struther, which began as a collection of short newspaper columns in the Times about the daily life of an English household in suburban London. Then it became a popular novel, and eventually a classic movie. (Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon.) The movie was soon recognized by both British and American leaders--Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill--as an invaluable aid in mobilizing American opinion in favor of entering the war on the Allied side.
