A senior in high school,
“too soon too old”
After his trip to Italy, Wesley came bearing gifts- a Pinocchio for each child and a large Pinocchio for the class. We learned that the story and character are from northern Italy. In turn, we taught Wesley to sing “Old MacDonald” in Italian.
Thank you, Wesley. You told me it seems like yesterday that you were a little boy in my classroom. It seems like yesterday to me, too.
Why do they return and visit? When I ask, they can’t put their finger on it exactly. I think I know why:
People will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Thank you, Wesley.
