Toutes nos condoléances
My old principle of Butler Elementary school. Always was a kind-hearted man, and a very just person in my eyes. Soft spoken, well worded, and wise.
I really did look up to him back then.. I would go see him when I got picked on by other kids.
I remember at my elementary graduation that he made friendly jokes about my best friend and I at the time, myself and Freddy Grant Jr. He always found it funny that the biggest kid in school was best friends with the smallest kid in school.
I also remember the time in elementary when they changed principles.
Around that time, I remember when I was sick, I went to the office, and the secretary told me to lay down on the cot to rest near the wooden bookshelves in the back.. I think I was covered with this thin orange blanket, but I was comfortable. 🙂
I think it was his son, who I think became the new principle at the time, who came in and asked me if I have ever heard of the song Enya-Only Time. I told him no, I have never heard it.
Wow come to think of it, this was the first song in my life I ever liked. I first heard it again in 2011 after I moved to New Brunswick.
My head flooded with a feeling close to home.
I remember in grade 5 when we first got our laptops, ever.
We first heard about them when Mrs.Schmidt had hers when we joined the mediation club afterschool program.
Now, I wish laptops were never introduced in school, only courses on how to properly use them.
Cursive writing is being thrown out of school… and many more children now days are suffering from physical ailments that shouldn’t exist.
Hand writing is becoming a thing in the past, but this is not right.
People’s ability to write by hand in the future will be no more.
Us, as human beings, slowly evolve into our environment over time.
All I have been taught by all of my teachers and mentors in school and otherwise, will not go in vain.
I promised to change the world, and I will do just that.
Rest in peace, sir.
You are loved by many and have touched more souls than you realised.
I always did think of you from timw to time, as I do many of my old mentors.
I can and I will change this world for the better.
I have learned much, and I will teach ad many as I can about all I have learned.
Much of which would not be accepted by current academic standard.
You are missed.
