Life Lessons

To those who doubt the integrity of the youth of today, I encourage you to look closely around you, because there are many, many young people out there doing incredibly positive things for the betterment of others.

In late fall, the secretary at my oldest daughter’s school was diagnosed with breast cancer, and let me tell you, this is one very special lady in the lives of the students and families at our school! It has been awe-inspiring to witness the outpouring of support for this amazing woman, most of which has been student-led.   Yesterday is just an example of one such, student-inspired event.

Over 50 students participated in the “Losing Our Locks For Betsy” event, where they cut their hair to show solidarity for their beloved Mrs. Conery.  My tiny kindergartener, with some of her classmates in tow, were the first to arrive at the event yesterday morning, and it was one of those moments where I felt like quite the proud mama.  These six year olds were fully aware of what they are doing, and it was wonderful to stand witness to the testament these little ones were making, all on their own, for someone they care deeply about.
