faraway places

(AMY ETRA)I was in eighth grade when I attended my first Shakespearean play. Dragged to it would be a better description. The play was Twelfth Night, which I thought was an apt title because I expected to sleep through the whole thing. It was a class outing to Wayne State University in Detroit, and on the bus trip down Woodward Avenue I remember sneakily tossing things from the back of the bus at the girls we secretly liked.We were the only ones in the Hilberry Theatre that day. The lights dimmed. There was the usual snickering and horseplay. A girl hissed, “Cut it out!” Then an otherworldly lighting effect washed over the stage, and pretty soon we were on the coast of Illyria with the clever young aristocrat Viola, after…

someone cares

(ILLUSTRATIONS BY COCO MASUDA)GO BANANASWorking in an elementary school lunchroom, as I have for nearly 15 years, requires getting up and leaving the house well before my own two little girls wake up. My husband gets them ready in the morning, but I make up their lunches the night before. I always write them notes on their napkin or banana so they know I’m thinking of them.One evening, my mom was over. We chatted as I made the girls’ lunch. “I wish there were more I could do to encourage the kids at my school,” I said. “How about that?” my mom asked, gesturing to the banana I was putting in my daughter’s lunch. On it I’d just written, “I love you to infinity and beyond!” I pondered the idea.…

in her shoes

I SETTLED INTO MY SEAT IN THE audience at Good Morning America and stared down at the shoes I was wearing. My little sister’s shoes. Emily had died eight months earlier, a slow, painful death from cervical cancer. I had inherited her gray, slip-on Converse sneakers with white laces. I loved those shoes. I hated them too. Every time I put them on, I was reminded that I wouldn’t see my sister or hold her again for a long, long time.Emily and I hadn’t been close growing up. We were opposites. She was the type to jump up in the morning and start her day, with GMA on the TV. I liked nothing better than a quiet morning with coffee and Scripture. When she got sick, I flew from New…

the power of visualization

(KATIE HOGIN)My mother grew up in the tenements of the Bronx in New York City and was the first in her family to go to college. One of the requirements she faced was having to take a course in public speaking. She was petrified. “I had never spoken publicly before,” she told me, “and I had no idea how to do it.”She woke up with a stomachache at the mere thought of it. Fortunately her teacher gave her three crucial tips: write key points on note cards, practice before a mirror and visualize speaking before the class. See and hear yourself confidently delivering your talk.It worked. “For the first time in my life,” Mom recalled, “I was able to speak in public, something no one in my family had ever…
