April News in May (con't)

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Our butterfly cup runneth over...

Finding words to describe the package arriving in the mail April 19th  evade me.   Instead, I offer  this  photograph  taken upon opening it.

Butterflies from the students at Carstairs Elementary School

Bulletin Board at Carstairs Elementary School

The enclosed  note read:

"What a wonderful thing you are doing, bringing awareness of this project to Alberta.  Our class felt it was a meaningful way to remember Hana Brady from our novel study, "Hana's Suitcase" and we watched our bulletin board fill with butterflies from many other students in our school as well."  R.A.

Novel Study - "Hana's Suitcase"

Photographing 127 butterflies individually is a welcomed challenge, but does take time.  Please bear with me as I 'chip away' at this process.   I will catch up ASAP. 

To the students and teachers who facilitated this project, a very big thank you times 127 for your devotion to bringing awareness globally to the hopes and dreams of all of us to STOP hatred.

OMG, OMG! Trudi, look at the awareness you've raised and the creativity you've unleashed! I'm in tears!!!!! Seeing the picture of all of those lovely, individual butterflies on the board rendered me speechless. I'm in awe of how one person can touch so many lives. Fabulous!!!!! Hugs & Love, Terri xoxoxo
