  1. To Mr. Josephson,

    I love your “What Will Matter” poem, and with your permission I used it at the end of my eBook for “tweens” as a blueprint for living a life that matters. I am a former elementary teacher of thirty-three years and love family, kids, poetry, quotes, and golf. My eBook, 101 SECRETS! A KNAPSACK OF INSPIRATION AND HOPE FOR TWEENS is filled with quotes for kids and true stories. Please check it out: http://booklocker.com/books/6026.html.

    Write on,
    Joe Sottile
