    Cool cartoon! Miss Wright sounds like she was in the perfect job. Truly an act of kindness that made a lifetime impression.

    Thanks for the tip about Fiona’s novel … I just clicked over and downloaded it and I’m looking forward to reading it.

    Lori and Bobbi,

    Hi and Thank You!

  3. What a fun way to record a kindness. A wonderful memory. Thank you for sharing and for visiting my blog.

  4. Cute story! Love the graphic novel format! Mrs. Wright knew just what to do. We need more teachers and school secretaries like that!

    Hi Dave,
    It’s little acts of kindness by others that makes this world so awesome. I never let a day go by where I don’t do something nice for another without expecting anything in return.

    Take care. :)

    Hi Justin,

    That’s a beautiful practice! Being part of the blogsplash has opened my eyes to so many small kindnesses and how they can deeply affect others for years to come. Thank you for visiting.

    Heh, as I read this comic I realized that I had a perception of a school as a place where no administrative person would ever come close to doing that kind of thing for a kid. That may have been mostly true in my high school, but in my school prior to that (which admittedly was an “alternative,” “New-Agey” school) many staff members were regularly kind to me.

      Hi Chris,

      That’s interesting. It makes sense that school admin people might be less likely to reach out like that, they’re focus is on the more administrative things rather than working with kids face to face. At the same time plenty of people know how to be spot a kid who’s having a hard time and show a little kindness, regardless of their occupation. thanks for your thoughts, Chris.

      Cheers!
