We were supposed to write the name of someone we would be running for. Some of my students couldn't think if anyone so I told them that my dad passed away from cancer and they could put him on their tag. It eared up when I told me about it, and then to see those kids running with his name in their tag did it to me again.
I wonder when I will be able to talk about cancer and my dad without tearing up.
Apparently not quite yet.
