This was written in a purple A to Z kids’ cursive handwriting practice journal. (Yes, remember when teachers actually taught this beautiful art form?)
This journal signature was on the W page. Each of my students wrote their own favorite word in the journal, choosing a letter of their own. Ernesto chose W.
Ernesto was a 4th grade student in my class in 1998 – 1999 in Southern California. He was a hispanic boy with the most beautiful big brown eyes and long eyelashes. He was a kind soul. I wonder what he is doing now. He was a poet and philosopher. I loved talking with him. He was an old soul and had a lot of wisdom for a boy so young.
Kids are wise; they see truth.
