    Nice Message To Share

    One day a teacher asked

    her students to list the

    names of the other

    students in the room on

    two sheets of paper,

    leaving a space between

    each name.

    Then she told them to

    think of the nicest thing

    they could say about each

    of their classmates and

    write it down.

    It took the remainder of

    the class period to finish

    their assignment, and as

    the students left the

    room, each one handed in

    the papers.

    That Saturday, the

    teacher wrote down the

    name of each student on

    a separate sheet of paper,

    and listed what everyone

    else had said about that


    On Monday she gave

    each student his or her

    list. Before long, the

    entire class was smiling. "

    Really?" she heard

    whispered. "I never knew

    that I meant anything to

    anyone!" and, "I didn't

    know others liked me so

    much," were most of the


    No one ever mentioned

    those papers in class

    again. She never knew if

    they discussed them after

    class or with their

    parents, but it didn't

    matter. The exercise had

    accomplished its purpose.

    The students were happy

    with themselves and one

    another. That group of

    students moved on.

    Several years later, one of

    the students was killed


    VietNam and his teacher

    attended the funeral of

    that special student. She

    had never seen a

    serviceman in a military

    coffin before. He looked

    so handsome, so mature.

    The church was packed

    with his friends. One by

    one those who loved him

    took a last walk by the

    coffin. The teacher was

    the last one to bless the


    As she stood there, one of

    the soldiers who acted as

    pallbearer came up to her. "
    Were you Mark's math

    teacher?" he asked. She

    nodded: "yes." Then he

    said: "Mark talked about

    you a lot."

    After the funeral, most of

    Mark's former classmates

    went together to a

    luncheon. Mark's mother

    and father were there,

    obviously waiting to

    speak with his teacher.

    "We want to show you

    something," his father

    said, taking a wallet out

    of his pocket "They found

    this on Mark when he

    was killed. We thought

    you might recognize it."

    Opening the billfold, he

    carefully removed two

    worn pieces of notebook

    paper that had obviously

    been taped, folded and

    refolded many times. The

    teacher knew without

    looking that the papers

    were the ones on which

    she had listed all the

    good things each of

    Mark's classmates had

    said about him.

    "Thank you so much for

    doing that," Mark's

    mother said. "As you can

    see, Mark treasured it."

    All of Mark's former

    classmates started to

    gather around. Charlie

    smiled rather sheepishly

    and said, "I still have my

    list. It's in the top

    drawer of my desk at


    Chuck's wife said, "Chuck


    sked me to put his in our

    wedding album."

    "I have mine too,"

    Marilyn said. "It's in my


    Then Vicki, another

    classmate, reached into

    her pocketbook, took out

    her wallet and showed

    her worn and frazzled

    list to the group. "I carry

    this with me at all

    times," Vicki said and

    without batting an

    eyelash, she continued: "I

    think we all saved our


    That's when the teacher

    finally sat down and

    cried. She cried for Mark

    and for all his friends

    who would never see him


    The density of people in

    society is so thick that

    we forget that life will

    end one day. And we

    don't know when that

    one day will be.

    So please, tell the people

    you love and care for,

    that they are special and

    important. Tell them,

    before it is too late.

    May Your Day Be

    Blessed As Special As
