A heartening Thanksgiving story out of Kingwood Texas (outside of Houston). You may have seen this on CNN, but it is a such a story about kids doing what it is right for their fellow man. More details plus video:
… Mr. Love is a substitute teacher at Kingwood High School that is loved by all the students. He is somewhere between 88 and 93 years old. On Thursday or Friday while Mr. Love was trying to get order in the class, a freshman told Mr. Love that he did not have to listen to him along with other choice comments. That upset Mr. Love and severely saddened him.
Mr. Love is one of those teachers that support the kids by going to their games. He keeps things spunky by wearing funny hats and keeping things light. All around he is just what we expect of the great teachers.
Jason DeVault, and his friends along with the student organization “Just About Kids” took it upon themselves to use social media (Facebook & Twitter) to arrange a wonderful thank you to their wonderful teacher. Jason said there were 50 to 60 kids there and there would have been many more but many were out of town. In my humble opinion I stopped counting after 50 and I think there were at least 75. Mr. Love showed both shock and extreme appreciation.
It is heartening to see young students show this type of affection to their teacher. As Mr. Love said, these students could be doing much more fun things on a Sunday evening. That they felt the need to give Mr. Love some love after the less than ideal week he had, show us that goodness still reign in most of us still.
