For the past week I have said goodbye to so many of my students. This has been such a remarkable group and I will miss them. But it's the nature of my job to say hello and goodbye. It has been a very long time since I have had a group of students who embraced me and my classes like this group has.
Always prayers for each group who leaves, but this one leaves my heart a little more empty than most. I have sent each of them off with hugs, prayers and some tears and hopes for the life they deserve. Hopes for the life they were born to live.
Early morning class and then at some point tomorrow I will go see Louis. This letting go of such a friend causes a great deal of pain and sadness. I am weary tonight.
May we all know peace, appreciate all that we have and love and respect each other.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams
