An adult, a teacher no less, got her students, sixth graders, to engage in violence on their friend and classmate. The teacher forced the sixth graders to slap one of their classmates 10 times each, and the kid was slapped a total of 231 times for allegedly using foul language in class. Why 231? Because the crime had been “upgraded” to a higher … [Read more...] about We have been slapped. How do we turn the other cheek?
Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc delivers a speech at the 30th Diplomatic Conference In his speech, PM Phuc praised the Vietnamese diplomats for their sustained efforts to act as a bridge linking Vietnam to the world, creating a stronger position for Vietnam.
