Carmela B

She's my favorite teacher. She's taught me so many things throughout the years that I've had her. It would be really neat if she would be nominated as someone's hero, just like she is to me.

Every time I read or hear something as wonderful as this I can't help but cry because it's so beautiful. And now she's a little angel watching over her parents. She did more in her short life than people who have lived for decades upon decades.

Christopher B. from Miami, Fl MAY 12, 2009
So touching. It's making me fall apart inside. I think its a good thing because there's a lot of people with cancer and so many are dieing and there's no cure for this virus its killing a lot of people.
