Author Unknown --- Submitted by K.B., Age 18 --- Massachusetts
I know this quote seems kind of dumb and you've probably heard it a million times, but I can't help but think of it every time I'm walking into school or a party and I'm wearing something a little different or I did my hair a little different that day. I don't know, it makes me feel brave.

" Teachers are some of the most inspirational people, but some have forgotten just what that really means. Some might say that "to inspire" means to touch someone's heart and lift them from their emotional slump, but these people are but just a little off. "To inspire", is to hold another's heart in your hands, fill it with hope, believe in it, and watch it glow. "To inspire", is to lift a person from the depths of the deepest, coldest ocean and raise them to touch the hands of the angels in the heavens above. "To inspire", is to make all dreams not only seem possible, but be possible. Most of all, "to inspire" is to love. Teachers inspire simply be being there, like a beacon of light and hope, shining through the darkness."
