I work as a teacher in a middle school. As you may remember this age can bring hard social times. I feel I spend a majority of my time fighting fires of early teenage social injustice. When I found this, it gave me a little hope that my middle schoolers really do have hearts…
I found this photograph in the ER waiting room in mid-December of 2014. On the back was written, “Summer of 1989″. It appears to be in halfway decent shape; I’m guessing that it may have fallen out of a photo album.

Since I found this note at a behavioral health center, I think someone’s grandson landed themselves in the loony bin. They either forgot about a coffee appointment with Grandma or wasn’t able to attend.

I found this note while I was out for a jog. It was sitting on a wet lawn in front of a neighborhood middle school. I ran past it without stopping to look at what it was and I continued on my run. I couldn’t get it out of my mind, so instead of doing the normal loop, I went back the same way I had come, and alas, it was still there! I think it was totally worth the re-route! This note has me perplexed. Is it really an apology? It sounds like more of a letter of reprimand! One thing it did confirm to me is that I will NEVER, EVER, EVER teach middle school!
