I’ve tried to figure out a way to survive the next two weeks and I’ve come up with a plan. I’m going to show the students motivational videos and ask them to write an answer to one question: What do you want to be remembered for? 

In searching for the right video to show, I found so many that have helped me to feel better about my current situation and thought I’d share this one with you: 

No matter how it goes, I know I’ll have tried my very best to make a positive difference. 

Sometimes you WIN, sometimes you LEARN. Failure is a lie. Every experience is a blessing so long as you see why it was sent to you. Don’t give up. I promise that I won’t give up on you.
