Seize the day

Hoping to motivate students to make the most of each day, a British teacher told high school students that a meteor was going to strike the earth in 10 days; she urged them to go home and say good-bye to their families.

After the crowd of 13- and 14-year-olds looked on in horror, and many burst into tears, the teacher swiftly explained that she was only trying to encourage them to “seize the day.”

Or seize the teacher and . . . Nuts! I can’t advocate violence.
