Exactly 20 years ago…we were attacked in a way that made it clear what they were attacking: our way of life, our freedom, the idea of us. For those who lost their lives in the atttack, and for those who gave their lives trying to save others in the aftermath, we should pause today and remember… and pray for their souls, and those of their loved ones, and all those around the world who are displaced and destroyed due to war and violence.

Every day in every way we should strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and in the same breath defend and protect our values and our families and our neighbors from powers and principalities which would do them harm.

This is not an easy balance to strike. We will miss the mark often in trying to strike it. It is in our nature to do so. So as we remember, let us take this day to be gracious towards those who may see the world a little differently. If you were tempted to label someone or dismiss someone because they have made a different decision than you about … their kids’ education, their health, their politics, their music, their clothing choice, whether they ask for the manager or not… whatever; then just stop for a second and think about this guy.

Be thankful for the choices… and the differences, and the blessed variety of humans which make up this great country, and thank your Creator that today you don’t have to make THIS choice, and ask Him to help you make the right ones today.

Those who attacked us don’t want us to get along and love each other. They want us making these kinds of choices.

Have a blessed and safe day, and may we all strive to be better at forgiving each other, but… we should… NEVER FORGET.

The Ideal in Decline 03/24/2021

The Ideal in Decline

This Spring at IndED, a chosen few kids are going through a book by Susan Wise Bauer called "The Story of Western Science"... it's neither a history book, nor a science book, but a book about science writing, and the motivations and modes of thoughts of great thinkers over history. If you'd like to join conversations like these, then IndED will be back in full force in the Fall. Stay tuned or contact us: inded.us/contact

The Ideal in Decline The great gift that the Greek philosopher, Plato gave Western Science was the importance of using the senses in understanding the natural world without requiring an absolute and constant appeal to the supernatural. However... ...Since physical reality is a shadow of the ideal, physics is always subo...

IndED's take on "socialization"... in this time of limited opportunities, we should make sure we're concentrating on the right things.

When you hear “Socialization,” think instead of “meaningful relationships.” At IndED we make sure students get to interact with their community; we seek truth through conversation and discourse, and focus on building character and sound communication skills.

Constitution Day - September 17, 2020 | U.S. Constitution

Today is Constitution Day! 233 years ago today, the Constitution was signed in Philadelphia, PA. It has survived a massive Civil War, the Great Depression, and innumerable times of strife and unrest. But it still stands, and today, amongst all the challenges we face, we should take great pride in it and strive to restore and defend it.

The 2020-2021 IndED MicroSchool Year

Now that Loudoun County has come to conclusions about the fall, IndED is (finally) announcing our plans. It is similar to what we've been doing (3 days a week, 4 hours a day), with a few changes:

1) it's at our new home at StageCoach Theatre Company in Ashburn. We'll be starting September 8th.
2) We've tightened the age range a bit. We can take fairly advanced 4th Graders, but it's officially 5th to 8th Grade.
3) We ONLY HAVE 6 SLOTS LEFT... as we're capping the program to a very low number so that we can effectively socially distance and be able to continue operating if there is a resurgence in the Pandemic.

I'm sure there are some questions, and can answer them over PM (every situation is a little bit different), to the extent that I can and arrange a phone call after that.

Above and beyond the limited MIcroSchool options, we'll have remote learning and support options as well... nationwide... math support, journal and literature programs. Project management tools.

We're here to help. More to come.
