Chardon Proud, Chardon Strong

Coffee of the Day - Coconut Macadamia

One of Ryan's teachers sent me a link to her flikr acct today. I asked, and she gave me permission, to share it with all of you. My heart was just bursting with joy as I looked through this album. People from all over the world have been sending cards to Chardon High School to show their support. Student office helpers spend hours opening cards and placing them on EVERY student's locker as well as throughout the school halls. Banners line the hallways as well from schools, some many miles away.

Never ever doubt that love prevails! :)

Thanks for sharing that, Jennifer. I'm sure this huge outpouring of love will help with the healing. Not sure if you saw this, but Chardon High is in the running for a local Rock Your Prom event. See the details on Jessica's blog here: She has gotten lots of support from the craft community and last I checked, Chardon was in second place.
Hope you are starting to heal, too. Sending you my thoughts and prayers.

I am sure that all of this will help the school and all that are in it's walls heal. This is amazing all the kindness that has poured out!

Wow Jen what a tremendous outpouring of love and show of community support, it brought tears to my eyes. I am sure that knowing there are so many people out there thinking and praying for all those effected will bring some comfort during the difficult weeks, and months ahead. TFS these photos, anyone viewing them is sure to feel uplifted. I know I do. :)

You and Chardon are SO VERY WELCOME. It took me a minute to fan away the tears after reading your message. I know that asking for votes was just a small piece behind their winning....the polls were full of people all over voting for Chardon. But, knowing how excited the kids are, made it all the more personal and worth while. I AM ECSTATIC THAT THEY WON!!! Please share pictures here on your blog of the prom if you can after its over!!!! I would love to share this with a lot of my blog friends that voted!!!
