On January 30, 2016, my dear father lost his short yet courageous battle with cancer. There have been pieces to pick up and adjustments to be made. Hearts to hold together and memories to savor. More importantly, there is a spirit to channel... and so today - with this blog post I am channeling the spirit and the passion of my late father to do the good work and the good deeds in serving others, in supporting children and inspiring students to see themselves as the wonderful, passion filled beings that they are.
To that end, I bring your attention to a video that a friend once shared with me. The message is simple. May we all be that champion. May we all be that light, that voice, that force that propels a curious and wondering student to question, take the risk, to step outside the comfort zone and become that which they have always been but never saw in themselves until all of a sudden, they did.
