Wordy Wednesday

The future of the world is in my classroom today, 
a future with the potential for good or bad... 
Several future presidents are learning from me today; 
so are the great writers of the next decades, 
and so are all the so-called ordinary people 
who will make the decisions in a democracy. 
I must never forget these same young people 
could be the thieves and murderers of the future. 
Only a teacher? 
Thank God I have a calling to the greatest profession of all! 
I must be vigilant every day, 
lest I lose one fragile opportunity to improve tomorrow.  
-Ivan Welton Fitzwater

Happy Wednesday!
