I came home today to 2 very sad kids. Wei and Yuan were crying because today was the last working day for their school headmaster who is retiring at 58 years old.
Yuan said that she was sad because the Headmaster always told stories at the weekly assembly. I asked her what sort of stories, and she said sometimes funny stories, sometimes moral stories.
I guess you can make a difference in whatever you do, even if you were a Headmaster who only ever interacted with your schoolchildren at arm's length. I don't think my kids know him personally, but somehow, he has touched their hearts in the way that only a good Headmaster could.
