I teach in an urban district where I have a first-hand look at life from a different perspective. I teach seniors who are getting ready to go into a world where they are thought to be NOT as good, unprepared, and basically overlooked. I spend each day showing them kindness, giving them support, and loving them for who they are. They are not perfect, but they have so much to offer. When they use their time and their talents, great things happen. They make a difference.

One of my students printed out this poem for me for Christmas. The card said "This poem reminds me of you every time I hear it. Word for word it totally describes you. Thank you for loving us unconditionally." I cry every time I read this poem. I am so grateful that I get to witness miracles every day as my kids make their mark in the world.

There was a time when I thought there was no such thing as true friendship until a girl showed me kindness and we started being there for each other. I love her very much.

I enjoyed the poem, and I always try smile, but now it's a little hard because of masks. This poem should be seen by everyone and help people feel more comfortable.

I understand how you feel. I was nine years old when I was raped. At least you were brave enough to tell your parents. I am too scared to tell my parents or call the cops.

l love this poem. l'm in a position of apologizing to my boyfriend, l know he loves me, and I love him too, but sometimes l feel like l don't want him. And yet when l feel like we are having issues, that's when l realize that l need him more than what l think. Now l messed up, and l'm trying to apologize, but at the same time l feel like this time around l'm not worth being forgiven because l have been forgiven many times. l don't know what it's going to be.
