In my experience, this question in one of the easiest for students to answer, but the most difficult to share. Sharing the answer to this question requires a level of comfort and trust which simply does not exist on the first day of school.
One year ago today, the Pilgrim family lost two of our most loved Patriots. The loss of Bella and Elanna left me confused, angry, and heartbroken; and August 31, 2011 is without question one of my worst days.
I know for many of you, today will be a difficult day... a day which brings back the intense feelings of loss and confusion... but you will get through it the same way you have gotten through the past year... with the love and support of friends, family, and teachers.
Love you Ladies. RIP.
