Today, think of those who helped shape your character and your view of the world. How is your world different because your paths converged for a while? Let your pen be an extension of your thoughts, and write the names of those who changed your life. Bring them alive through your words. Tell them what you learned from them and how it contributed to making you who you are today.

Most of all, give them the honor they deserve -- teachers every one. You may wish to take the paper on which their names are written and burn it in a fire of release. Let the flames take your memories of the past and disperse them to the winds.
