I am reminded of my kindergarten teacher who, everyday, would have us line up at the end of the day to “fill her Love Tank.”  We gave her a hug at the end of the day and she hugged us and held us, telling us how smart we were, how well-behaved we were, how happy she was to have us in her class.  I can only hope that the parents of the victims may find a small bit of comfort in the fact that the teachers loved their children and tried to protect them as if they were their own.

  1. Nicole, Thank you for your kind words remembering the wonderful days we spent together in Bethesda Kindergarten. The daily “good-byes” we shared were just a part of the love we created and shared with each other everyday. I wish children everywhere had a classroom environment such as we had then. I will always believe that “Everything you ever needed to learn to lead a successful life, you learned in Kindergarten!” Remembering and cherishing those most special days we spent together. i love you forever and am so proud of all you do. Love, Barb
