Seen And Not Heard

As a young pupil who attended a strict, traditional Church school, I remember very often being told that 'children should be seen and not heard'. Probably because my parents were never the unyielding tyrant types, this phrase was hardly ever used...

Blame or Shame

A man has died in unusual circumstances. He was nothing less than a human being like you and me, and yet he no longer speaks, breathes, lives. His mother is heartbroken, his siblings are devastated and his friends are inconsolable. Whether...
