We learn by imitation
from the time we are conceived
to the time we die
we recite our words and thoughts
and in most cases
these things frame our lives
Most take on the whispers
that has floated into their ears
as a guiding principle for their lives
and when those whispers
are the drippings of a venomous mind
what happens to the child being fed?
Whose recital are you listening to?
Richie was so excited that his heart literally burst with pride. Finally, not only was he now part of the team, he also scored a winning goal.
For the first time in forever, someone felt that he was good enough to step away from the bench by the sidelines’ where he always sat watching.
Ever since Mr. Pierson became the school coach, his life changed for the better.
He was no longer considered the slow boy, the odd one out, the autistic child who didn’t seem to fit in.
Mr. Pierson was so inclusive and encouraging. He simply brought the best out of his students, which was so unlike the previous coach who never wanted to be bothered with the special needs children.
