The History of Paracord
The term paracord comes from the cord used on the soldier's parachutes in WWII. The term 550 simply means that it has a breaking strength of 550 pounds, giving it the name of 550 paracord or 550 cord. When soldiers landed in the battle fields, they would cut the cord off their parachutes and pack it up for later use. The cord would come in handy for the soldiers during battle.
The bracelet can be a great gift for school members. Let me explain.
PARACORDS FOR EDUCATORS
The bracelet is a constant reminder of our survival of the school year and the bond we all share. It signifies the power of our united strength. I love this quote- "I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me." We are stronger together than we are apart.
We are STRONG. We are SURVIVORS. We PERSEVERE.
OUR UNENDING LOVE
As educators, we should love what we do. After all, we're making an impact on the next future leaders. The length of the rope signifies our love for our students and our love for what we do.
We are not in this business for the income. We are in the business for the outcome. It's our passion and our calling. We are PASSIONATE.
THINGS DON'T ALWAYS GO AC"CORD"ING TO PLAN
The bracelet signifies that things will not always go the way we wanted it to. Our lessons will fail. Our schedules will be adjusted. Our entire day can crumble before us. We are always in a constant state of change. That's okay. We are UNSHAKABLE. We are COURAGEOUS.
