3 Years Ago Today My Life Changed Forever. Why? Because that was the day my daughter, Sienna, was born.
What I discovered was that every cliche’ about parenthood was true. And really, I doubt that there’s anything I can truly add to the pantheon of conversation as far as what it means to be a dad. There’s nothing I would not do for my daughter, no sacrifice I would not make, and on and on and on. She is the center of my life’s wheel and I never knew what joy in life meant until I knew what it felt like to have Sienna smile at me.
It melts all the other shenanigans away.
If only we, in our schools, could remember that every kid in every one of our classrooms is someone’s child — and if we simply sought to educate these children the way we would ask that our own children be educated so much of the nonsense would simply fall away.
