What was your favorite school lunch? • Donuts • Bologna sandwich and Doritos • Spaghetti served with a peanut butter sandwich • Um, corn dogs! • Tofu, rice, and steamed broccoli • Creamed chipped beef on toast (shit on a shingle) • Book under a tree with a Coke • Home-bagged eggplant parmigiano! • Probably something horrific like pizza... • Roasted chicken with potatoes, peas, and applesauce.

The principles contained herein—that we are defined by our behavior, that we are largely responsible for what we make of ourselves, that we need to be astute about whom to avoid and whom to cherish as we move through our lives—all are ideas of vital importance. We can never know enough about the pur- suit of happiness.” - Gordon Livingston, M.D. C For more information about The Pursuit of Happiness, find Blackwood Education on facebook or at
