You Matter Moment of the Week
“The ‘You Matter’ marathon has been a heart-warming experience for me as I have secretly and sometimes not so secretly delivered this powerful message. These two words have touched the lives of family members, personnel at my school, and people who are currently navigating difficult circumstances in their lives. Today over 50 teachers opened a training manual that contained a “You Matter” card. I saw the look on their faces. One person had tears in her eyes and others smiled. This group is preparing to facilitate conversations with our 9th graders on topics related to identity, dignity/empathy, stereotypes/biases, and community.
‘You Matter’ = ‘We All Matter.’ I can’t be me without you.”
