This holiday season, ask the people around you about their lives — it could be your grandmother, a teacher, or someone from the neighborhood. By listening to their stories, you will be telling them that they matter and they won’t ever be forgotten. It may be the most meaningful time you spend this year.In the NPR story, Steve Inskeep (NPR Morning Edition host) talks with his mother. It’s an interesting conversation and I particularly like how it closes:
Maybe I got my desire from [my parents]. The desire to learn something, and pass it on.That’s a pretty good description of why I blog.
Consider participating on Friday, and ask your students to do so as well. You might learn something. If you do, pass it on.
