Teachers, if they are lucky, experience a child really special during their tenure in a classroom. I have been a fortunate one and have had many students that I would call special. Some of them have been outstanding ball players, some became doctors, lawyers, judges, and some have made it in the musical world. Richard and Rex were two of those musical special students. They would bring their guitars and come to my room every morning at 7 and we would play and sing until the call in bell rang. Richard is a fabulous musician and when he finishes playing a guitar it actually sighs when he sets it down. Before the boys graduated from high school the three of us sang together at the Loft in Columbus. I have a picture on my desk that reminds me daily of that night. Everytime I look at that picture I remember just exactly why I do what I do.
