My elementary school teacher was my inspiration to continue in music. She knew how to make everything we learned fun. She gave us hands on experiences with Caribbean instruments. Bongos, congos, and even steel drums if we were in her special steel drum ensemble. I learned how to play a trumpet as well thanks to her. 

Even after I moved on to middle school, I came back occasionally just to see her and the music room. The kids she was with always had a lot of fun that I wish I could still be apart of. 

Now I'm in high school, and last year, it was announced that she would be retiring because she is diagnosed with cancer. I heard the news through my friend, who has a younger sister still in our elementary school. I haven't seen my teacher once since then. I saw her husband, but I didn't want to touch such a subject. 

Recently, it was announced that she was in the hospital. Her cancer reached her lungs. The day I heard the news, I couldn't bring myself to smile. By the end of the day, I just burst into tears. I can't imagine a world without her. 

My friend and I decided to join the organization that's organizing a special tribute for the music teacher. My friend made a decision to call all of our old classmates who played steel drums with us. I decided to fold 1000 cranes for her with friends, each crane symbolizing how many students she's touched.

trust me this will put a smile on your face, make your day, or help you











Every night , someone thinks about you before


they go to sleep,










At least fifteen people in this

world love you.





The only reason someone would ever hate you is


because they want to be


just like you










There are at least two people in this world that



would die

for


you








You mean the world to someone.





Someone that you don't even know



exists

loves

you.






When you make the biggest mistake ever,


something good comes from it.











When you think the world has turned its back on


you, take a

look.











Always remember the compliments you've received.









Forget the rude remarks.


















So if you are a loving friend, send this

to

everyone on your list


including


the person that sent it to you.



Tonight

at

midnight your true love will

realize


they like



you.










Something good will happen to you between 12 in the morning

and


four o'clock pm


tomorrow,


it could be anywhere . Get ready for the biggest


shock of your

life










If you break this chain YOU will be cursed with


relationship problems


for



the next ten years . Send this to fifteen people


in fifteen minutes !!


Make Someone else's day! Help get a smile on someone's face! Help someone out! ❤ remember that your loved





F.R.I.E.N.D.S. 😉
= Fight for you
= Respect you
= Involve you
= Encourage you
= Need you
= Deserve you
= Save you
Send this to all your friends & me if I'm one......If you get 4 back u r liked but if u get 7 back then u r seriously loved
