Hi ladies, This is a true story written by Sister Helen Mrosla of Minnesota. Sister Helen was a nun teaching math in Minnesota. One friday in 1965, her class was having a lot of trouble understanding a math lesson. Even Mark, her nicest and funniest student was angry and frustated. Sister Helen decided it was time to try something different. She had each student write the names of each class member and next to each name, something positive about that person. When they were finished, Helen collected all the papers and rewrote each classmates name on a separate piece of paper, along with the commen ts everyone had written. She then gave all the students the paper with their own name and comments about them. Before long, the entire class was laughing and smiling, she heard students say `wow` and `I didnot know that`. The students were happy to hear all the nice things written about them. Some said they were surprised others thought so many good things about them. They walked out of math class confident and proud. Several years later, Sister Helen was saddeded to hear Mark was killed in Vietnam. She attended the funeral with many of his high school friends. After the burial, Mark`s parents walked up to her and told her they had found Mark`s list from the math class in his military uniform. The paper was worn and taped in many spots. Mark`s father now carried it in his pocket. Mark`s mother thanked Helen for making Mark feel so good about himself. Mark`s classmates who heard the women talking smiled and started telling their stories. Charlie smiled and said `I still have my list`. It is in the top drawer of my desk at home. Chuck said `I asked my wife to put my list in our wedding album`. Vicki reached into her purse, took out her wallet and showed everyone her torn and stained list `I carry this with me all the time. I think everyone in that class saved their list`. Sister Helen sat down and cried. She cried for Mark and for all his friends who would never see him again. She thought of something she had read when she had decided to try the list in her math class sometimes the smallest of things mean the most to another. What you think friends?
