I am truly humbled that anything I said inspired such profound reflection for you, since more often then not, you are my inspiration. It feels backwards, since I feel like a student of yours. I just wrote that, and the pun wasn’t intended, but I really like the idea of it. You’re not teaching history, but maybe that’s not what you were meant to teach right now? Maybe you were meant to teach us to be more optimistic, better people — to shine our lights a bit brighter? I know that’s what you’re teaching me.
