I like the Grinch movie with all the lovely Whos. I liked their clothes and their baubles. The older Grinch film, the animated one, was the best though. The Whos loved and cared for each other even though the presents and all the trimmings were gone, thanks to the grinch. People are hurting about now . . . a student came in crying yesterday. She'd had a hard morning because her dad got mad at her for listening to a radio station that is taboo in their house and then she was pelted with a football as she walked into school. Her sad eyes were REALLY sad. She isn't looking forward to a "broken home" Christmas vacation. Yesterday we did the gift thing I told you about. I'd already done it with three classes and this last class LOVED their "gifts" and were hilarious "giving" each other gifts. I laughed! They are FUNNY! We played the mailman game, where they write notes to each other with no talking and no harassing the mailman as he or she delivers the notes around the room. They left happy. Two more days before they go home to their lives. I hope their parents are good-hearted Whos. Wasn't Dr. Seuss smart? He named the people in his story the Whos. Who am I at Christmas time? What do I care about or more importantly, WHO do I care about? I like people. I like you. Be a Who.
