    Kai Pt.2

    Kai made me cry today. Of all the kids in my class, he's the only one that I could never ask about his mum. It was only until a month or so ago I actually found out part of the story.Before Kai came along, his mum was a drug addict. When he was 3 her addiction was so severe, she...

    The Fat Guy

    I spent four days in a training class on a very dry, boring subject. The instructor was a man in his 40's, who weighed about 400 pounds. He is one of the most remarkable people I've ever met. On the first day, he broke the ice by referring to himself as "the fat guy" in...

    If You've Never Left Walmart Feeling Blessed...pay Attention

    This is a little something I shared on another site a few months ago :) I strolled past the craft department and noticed a man standing in front of the silk flowers. In my mind, I already knew what he was doing. In an instant, I thought, he must be taking flowers to his mother...

    We All Have Tales To Tell

    That old man, face weather-beaten, living in a cardboard box, fingerless gloves dressed in rags shivering in the cold brisk air has a story to tell. So does the girl who has tons of make-up piled on smeared by tears at the Greyhound bus station who can't be more than fifteen in...

    Devika

    I guess she's on my mind. The tiny little 8yr old who always asks in case she offends or does the wrong thing. She's so bright and funny and an awesome dancer. If there's ever a chance for her to dance, she'll be the first one to show us what she's got. Unfortunately, this...

    A Man With A White Cane

    I came across this man a few weeks ago. I was on my way to work, when I saw him on the street. He was blind. And obviously lost, trying to find the way, using his white cane. I stopped and asked if he needed any help. He didn’t reply. I thought that perhaps he didn’t hear me...

    Leaning Man

    My husband and I just recently moved to a new neighborhood. We had both lived in midtown for the past decade. It doesn't really matter what city, midtown says enough, it seems. The big old turn of the century houses with the porches that went on for days. We moved into a...

    Kai

    Kai is my favourite pupil. I know I'm not meant to have favourites, but he's mine. Kai's a little special. Lives in his own little world. I love watching him do his work and interacting with the rest of the class. There's nothing nasty or mean about Kai. He's everyone's friend...

    I Told Him Not To Make Me Cry

    He came in from lunch, tears in his eyes, very angry. His little face all scrunched up. They all know to get the most out of me, they need to calm down before they tell me what's wrong. So he held my hand, tightly, never once letting go despite running the gauntlet of trying to...

    The Light Of His Soul Shines Through His Eyes

    A lot of this is through memory, and as much as I can remember bits and pieces, it's not in the fullest detail as it was told. Whatever, or whoever writes about him, won't ever do the story justice.If you scratch the surface of any person, there's always a tinge of sadness about...
