    What a great poem! For me, it couldn’t have come to me at a better time in my life. It was stated so eloquently and to the point. Thank you so much for sharing it with your readers.

    I have borrowed your poem three times in my life to honor three people who I thought embodied the sentiments of the poem. On each occasion, there were tears throughout the audience. It is, truly, an inspiring poem. I try to live my life so that someone will honor me with these words. Thank you for all you have done and for this awesome poem.

    I loved being a teacher. I know that society and the government told me that what was important was test results. I always knew there was something more important. This poem sums up perfectly how I wanted to be remembered as a teacher. That is why I helped begin our anti-bully program. I wanted my kids to know that at least in my room they were safe! I continue that quest today. Thank you for a wonderful piece that also told my story!!!!!!! Jane
