What an advantage for those kids of yours to know how to process grief and feelings and words, to know what safe feels like, to know it’s worth fighting for, to know family and a sense of community is worth fighting for. To know to value working things through with words instead of just poking at icky or complicated feelings with sticks and covering them with something -anything!- else. They are all three going to be fantastic grown-ups! They’re already aces better than some “adults” I know!

Oh, how I love this! Mothers as safe places to land, a marvelous concept. Please say thank you to BB for giving you permission to share his poem. I was very moved by it and loved it. And YAY for great teachers (particularly teachers who teach writing well, right?).
