Well written and, ultimately, well lived, but I am still so sorry. I was a teacher for two decades plus change, so I was briefly a significant adult in the lives of thousands of kids. I know from those relationships that there is nothing more empowering than good parenting, and nothing more damaging than bad. It’s a rare and remarkable person who emerges from the bad with strength and integrity. Well done.
