You all are important to me!!!!!!!!!!!!
One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other
students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between
Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about
each of their classmates and write it down.
It took the remainder of the class period to finish their
and as the students left the room, each one handed in the papers.
That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a
separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said
about that individual.
On Monday she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the
entire class was smiling. "Really?" she heard whispered. "I never
knew that I meant anything to anyone!" and, "I didn't know others liked me
so much." were most of the comments.
No one ever mentioned those papers in class again. She never knew if
they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn't
matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose. The students were
happy with themselves and one another. That group of students moved
Several years later, one of the students was killed in Viet Nam and
his teacher attended the funeral of that special student. She had
never seen a serviceman in a military coffin before. He looked so
handsome, so mature.
The church was packed with his friends. One by one those who loved
him took a last walk by the coffin. The teacher was the last one to
bless the coffin.
As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came
up to her. "Were you Mark's math teacher?" he asked. She nodded:
"yes." Then he said: "Mark talked about you a lot."
After the funeral, most of Mark's former classmates went together to
a luncheon. Mark's mother and father were there, obviously waiting
to speak with his teacher.
"We want to show you something," his father said, taking a wallet
out of his pocket. "They found this on Mark when he was killed. We
thought you might recognize it."
Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of
notebook paper that had obviously been taped, folded and refolded
many times. The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the
ones on which she had listed all the good things each of Mark's
classmates had said about him.
"Thank you so much for doing that," Mark's mother said. "As you can
see, Mark treasured it."
All of Mark's former classmates started to gather around. Charlie
smiled rather sheepishly and said, "I still have my list. It's in
the top drawer of my desk at home."
Chuck's wife said, "Chuck asked me to put his in our wedding album."
"I have mine too," Marilyn said. "It's in my diary."
Then Vicki, another classmate, reached into her pocketbook, took out
her wallet and showed her worn and frazzled list to the group "I
carry this with me at all times," Vicki said and without batting an
eyelash, she continued: "I think we all saved our lists."
That's when the teacher finally sat down and cried. She cried for
Mark and for all his friends who would never see him again.
The density of people in society is so thick that we forget that
life will end one day. And we don't know when that one day will be.
So please, tell the people you love and care for, that they are
special and important. Tell them, before it is too late.
And One Way To Accomplish This Is: Send this message on. If you do
not send it, you will have, once again passed up the wonderful
opportunity to do something nice and beautiful
If you've received this, it is because someone cares for you and it
means there is probably at least someone for whom you care.
If you're "too busy" to take those few minutes right now to forward
this message on, would this be the VERY first time you didn't do
that little thing that would make a difference in your relationships?
>> >> > The more people that you send this to, the better you'll be at
reaching out to those you care about.
Remember, you reap what you sow. What you put into the lives of
others comes back into your own.
May Your Day Be As Blessed As
You Are Special

ALLEGAN -- An Allegan County boy died after a semi truck hit him while he was riding his bike.
The accident occurred around 1 p.m. Wednesday along Western Avenue, also known as M-40, in Allegan.
Police refused to release details about the crash. Allegan Police Chief Rick Hoyer says they are not releasing information out of respect for the family.
Friends of the victim's father told 24 Hour News 8 the boy's name is Leigh Crisman of Pullman. He was apparently visiting friends in the area.
The kids were riding their bikes on a sidewalk along what local residents call Water Tower Hill - a heavily traveled portion of Western Avenue.
Apparently the boys came down the hill when Crisman lost control of his bicycle and fell into the road, in front of the semi truck.
Police say there is no criminal investigation, and we assume the driver of the truck has been cleared of any wrongdoing. A large skid marks in the road shows where the driver tried to avoid hitting the boy.
Friends of the boy' dad - members of the Wolfpack Motorcycle Group - say they will work with the city to figure out a way to construct some kind of barrier between the street and the sidewalk.
The group says it is planning a ride for later this summer to raise funds for whatever project they can come up with to build the barrier.
~may he rest in peace and may god be with his family and friends as they go though this hard time that has come apon them~

im sick of all the bitching just leave me alone
no one understands me,
they dont know how it makes me feel,
they always criticise me,
they make me feel like im not real,
some times i wonder why im here,
most days i wish i would just drop down dead,
and put everyone out of their miseery,
so i lie here on my bed,
wiht a knife in my hand,
do i dare?
to kill my self,
if i did its not like theyd care,
i push the blade through my brain,
i feel the blood rund down my face,
im going to go to hell now,
its a far better place,
im leaving all my troubles be hind,
and all the people who made me sad,
im leaving the world were i once lived,
and all the things that made me mad,
all the times i felt that i,
just could not go on,
all the times i felt that i,
was being stranded upon,
but now those times are over,
because i have ended my life,
and all of this was possible,
with the sharp edge of a knife.
