Bryan,

I know how crucial those special people can be. I wept as I read this account of this one and his impact on your life. Do you know if he's still alive? If he is you might want to get in touch. That's what I've been doing and it's helping me a lot.

Much love,
Larry

Larry,

I think you brought up a great idea. I know how difficult the job of teacher/principal can be. I think at my next T session, I'm going to talk with my T about sending him a letter.

There is no doubt in my mind that he will remember me.

Thank you to everyone who has responded here.

Bryan

Bryan --

When I was 8 my 2nd grade teacher tried to put barrettes in my hair because my hair was too long. You can scarcely imagine how terrified I was. Being abused at home and having a teacher publicly feminize you like that - hoo boy. The story ends with me throwing getting surrounded by the class and throwing a heavy book at her head.

She was wrong to do what she did and the incident would probably spark enough controversy to wind up on the Drudge Report if it happened today, but still - your story here makes me want to write her a letter to explain why I was so freaked out and to let her know (though I think she retired) that there is often alot going on with a boy that a teacher has no way to know. That it might be alot more helpful to talk to kids.

I bet this guy would really appreciate the letter. Hope your T thinks you should do it.

Love, TW

I have a teacher who im pretty close to... i asked him why he teaches and he said because he enjoys knowing that he might have made a difference in a childs life. i bet your old principle would think the same. i agree with Larry you should try to get in touch with him if you can.

Hi Bryan,

Yes, that was a special time, and I'm glad you shared that with us. I was almost in tears when I finished reading. It's tough when the hugs are so few and far between. In fact, I've promised myself when I see Dad in heaven we'll hug then as we couldn't here on Earth. I've had good moments like that, too, where a hug has helped me. And I'd give you a hug too, if I met you.

Ed

Thanks for talking about your experience. I certainly would give you a hug if I could. You deserved it then and certainly a whole bunch more before and after your experience.

Glad that your here and that we can be part of your life.

B

Bryan,

I'm late to this thread but I want to thank you for sharing that story. It is amazing to me the difference just one person can make in a kids life with a single act of kindness. My eyes were wet as well when I was reading.

Thanks,

John

My T has agreed with the idea of sending this letter. I'm going to write it this weekend and pop it into the mail next week.

Thank you again to everyone who has responded. This thread has turned into something awesome for me.

Bryan
