    It’s been a practice since the time of kings, when battles were fought on horseback. Soldiers needed to be able to spot the point where their regiment was located, so they looked for their “colors,” their specific flag. And so throughout the years, it’s become a tradition, especially at military academies, to hold a “Blessing of the Colors” ceremony to kick off the school year. Waynesboro’s Fishburne Military School held theirs on Wednesday afternoon.

Kaine's proposal makes sense

Every teacher at some point gets tested by their students. Someone will act up in class or do something because they think they can get away with it. How that teacher handles the situation most of the time sets the tone for the rest of the school year. In many ways, it’s the same with our country’s foreign policy.
