The Power of One

The Power of One

In honor of Educator Appreciation Week, I share this poem by Ashish Ram.  It reminds me of the energy and emotion you put into your work.  It underscores how day in and day out each one of you pours your heart and soul into making a difference for our kids, our community and our future.  Please know you are appreciated this week and every day.

One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.

One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what’s true.
One life can make the difference,
You see, IT’S UP TO YOU!

Take care. Stay safe.  Be well.
