Everyday is a new day,
No matter what comes my way.
When I am with free spirited people like you,
Then I know today is true and new.
You make time for me even if it's for a few.

Never be afraid in a classroom, never be afraid on the playing field, and most of all, never be afraid in the path of life. You have people that believe in you, that love you, that care about you; dry your tears, you are going to be okay, because I believe in you, and you believe in you." Mr. Chapman --- Submitted by Holly W., Age 14 --- Virginia
My history teacher, Mr. Chapman, told me this one time after class when he saw me crying. He knew I was going through a hard time and every time I start to cry, I think about this, I dry my tears, and I'm not afraid anymore. Maybe if you think about this, when you are crying, you too won't be afraid anymore. Thanks, Mr. C., you're the best!!

You must understand before you are understood." Author Unknown --- Submitted by J.R. --- Kansas
Many youngsters and adolescents refuse to listen to any kind of advice. Sometimes, they want to "make" people understand who they are, and as a result, they refuse to listen. I think this may be the main contributor as to why they often see the turns, but not the roads ahead. In my opinion, reality awareness should be a key element in teaching these children.
