not affect me at all and some become a hovering storm which does not move
through quickly. Many of you grieved
with me last year as I said goodbye to my dear friend, Gigi, who moved to
another city. Gigi and I had worked
together and raised children together for years.
goodbye to twenty more of my colleagues (a few not pictured here). These are people who I deeply love and
respect. One in this picture, I have
known for 28 years. One is an
administrator who turned our high school around and who taught me so much about
education. One has been teaching all of
us how to rejoice through cancer, and tell us each day how blessed he is. All are amazing teachers, leaders, and people.
through academic challenges
children in attending top colleges
for their actions
guess, our school is facing some bumps.
I believe this has created such a deep sadness inside of me because I
have known these individuals for many years…worked with them…faced trials with
them…celebrated victories with them…and raised children together. We are family.
This weekend…no platitudes. Don’t tell me to look for the rainbow…that change is a good thing…that all good things must come to an end. I just want to grieve.
My smiles and my joy will return. But, I will cherish these loved ones in my heart
always and rejoice when I think of the good times.
grieve…but not allow them to shut us down and stop living.
