Today was my first day back to school (as a teacher.) I put this up on my bulletin board:
Today someone will:
Walk for the first time,
Save a life,
Help a friend,
Solve a problem.
What will you do today?
Be an agent of worldwide change.
As I was driving home I thought up a couple more I could have added. Most of the below are not school appropriate, but it is still a good exercise in really how precious our time is. Perhaps we could build a list together. I will start us out:
Adopt a homeless animal,
Forgive someone who doesn't deserve it.
Come on, add one. Don't leave me hanging. : )
