For being such a difficult topic, you certainly seemed to find your wings and spirited us with you on an unexpected flight to "Memory Island". That place where each one of us has a a teacher or a special someone that inspired us with the potential of our futures and fueled us with hope to make our dreams a reality. Thanks for the MEMORY!

I used to teach grade school, and I also homeschooled for several years and then tutored for a few more. I have a soft spot for teachers! :)

Your story was very inspiring and All-American in tone. I especially liked the sentence: "No longer were we little kids without purpose in life; that day we became children with a dream."

Very, very good Connie. The whole paragraph that ends "...as that hope escaped its solemn refuge" made me hold me breath. Beautiful message and so very tenderly written.

What a perfect story to represent the USA. I enjoyed the fact that success was attained to and success was achieved and you were able to bless your teacher as she had blessed you. Beautifully told. Thank you!
