A Teacher

This is so nice read it Please

* One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other
students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between
each name.

* Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about
each of their
classmates and write it down.

* It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment,
and as the students left the room, each one handed in the papers.

* That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a
separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about
that individual.

* On Monday she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the entire
class was smiling. "Really?" she heard whispered. "I never knew that I
meant anything to anyone!" and, "I didn't know others liked me so much."
were most of the comments.

* No one ever mentioned those papers in class again. She never knew if
they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn't
matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose. The students were
happy with themselves and one another. That group of students moved on.

* Several years later, one of the students was killed in Viet Nam and his
teacher attended the funeral of that special student. She had never seen
a serviceman in a military coffin before. He looked so handsome, so

* The church was packed with his friends. One by one
those who loved him took a last walk by the coffin. The teacher was the
last one to bless the coffin

* As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came up
to her. "Were you Mark's math teacher?" he asked. She nodded: "yes."
Then he said: "Mark talked about you a lot."

* After the funeral, most of Mark's former classmates went together to a
luncheon. Mark's mother and father were there, obviously waiting to
speak with his teacher.

* "We want to show you something," his father said, taking a wallet out of
his pocket. "They found this on Mark when he was killed. We thought you
might recognize it."

* Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of notebook
paper that had obvi o usly been taped, folded and refolded many times.
* The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the ones on which
she had listed all the good things each of Mark's
classmates had said about him.

"Thank you so much for doing that," Mark's mother said. "As you can see,
Mark treasured it."

* All of Mark's former classmates started to gather around. Charlie smiled
rather sheepishly and said, "I still have my list. It's in the top
drawer of my desk at home."

* Chuck's wife said, "Chuck asked me to put his in our wedding album."

"I have mine too," Marilyn said "It's in my diary."

Then Vicki, another classmate, reached into her pocketbook, took out her
wallet and showed her worn and frazzled list to the group "I carry this
with me at all times," Vicki said and without batting an eyelash, she
continued: "I think we all saved our lists."

* That's when the teacher finally sat down and cried. She cried for Mark
and for all his friends who would never see him again.

The density of people in society is so thick that we forget that life
will end one day. And we don't know when that one day will be.

* So please, tell the people you love and care for, that they are special
and important. Tell them, before it is too late.

* You should never be "too busy" to take those few minutes right now to tell all your loved ons how much they mean to

* Remember, you reap what you sow. What you put into the lives of others
comes back into your own.

so always remember the people you hold dear, and never forget to show them how much you care, cause on day it might be
to late

You Are Special!
Especially to me!
Love You Lots Frankie!
