And when missing love I’m misunderstood

Day 1: Woke up to Freedom Writers and as cheesy as I think the movie is, it reminded me of my first student teaching assignment, the personal connections I made with my students and the journals I left them with (I wrote a note in each of them). It reminded me of the educational mission that I set out on; to provide the hope, love, peace, positivity, and inspiration students like myself so desperately need, to be a bright light and positive influence for these students. It reminded me of the demographic of students that I have always sought (consciously and subconsciously) to work with. It was just what I needed and it made me happy! It reminded me of why I am a teacher

So what are you, what are you, what are you so afraid of?
Darling you, you give but you cannot take love
