TEAR TIME - Up Lifting Choral Moment - for Those Going Through or Have Supported a Loved One -With Cancer-

Here's an excellent example of a community coming together to support someone in need. Adriana Lopez, a teacher at PS22 in Staten Island, New York, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She has obviously been putting up one heck of a fight, because she inspired students in the chorus to dedicate the last song of their final practice of the school year to her. Their rendition of Martina McBride's "I'm Gonna Love You Through It" which was chosen as one of the anthems of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, left her in tears.
Thank you Commoncents

that is GORGEOUS, thanks for posting it, Carol!
Obviously, the sentiment and the teacher's reaction was so amazing..
But the singing, too, was REALLY GOOD...fantastic leader; seeing those kids gesturing as if they REALLY meant the words; and the diversity! All singing for a common cause; wonderful stuff. Thanks!

it is up lifting-and - the teacher is a man after my own heart- teaching children how to sing and using that skill to give their other teacher a 'hug'

Finally, some good news.
I don't mean from you, just in general.
