"If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything."
Also, on a side note, I coached my son's teeball team this past season, which just ended (I have my Thursday evenings and Saturday morning back!). I had a major problem giving out trophies to all the kids simply for showing up. Great kids, all of them, but I disagree with building self esteem and confidence through "trophies" that are meaningless. A couple of the kids are superstars in the making, but I am not allowed to single them out...at least not yet. The next league up, the 7/8 yr old league, allows the coach to appoint three all-stars from his team, so I will truly be allowed to award excellence. BUT, all the kids still get trophies. Grrrrrr
