Be the CHAMPIONS that you are! I was truly touched by the critical thinking of the second grade scholars. They asked tough inquiry questions that were more in-depth than some interviews I have done for television. They were so thoughtful and curious. They reminded me why I write! I hope the best for them and their teachers. May they always have that spirit of wanting to be the best. Be encouraged young ones. I am so impressed by who you are and what you may become. May your road be full of joy. Find happiness in all that you do and listen to your teachers. They know things. Believe in yourself too. Raise your hand with confidence. Show your grit and tenacity for learning. I believe in you and am watching.
