  1. Thanks so much for sharing Zach’s story. I first heard his amazing music when I learned his best friend is the daughter of a woman in my writing community. What a testament to living!

  2. Saw the “worst end of the school year mom” one earlier this week and even as a homeschooling mom I could relate. Our last 5 days were horrible. My kids daily journals contained chicken scratch that read “so happy school is done soon. the end” when early in the year there had been great 5 to 10 sentence stories in their best penmanship.
