“Cause You Ain’t Ask For One”
D'Essence Grant

God, I love teachers. You all must have massive brains, extreme courage, and an absolute love for and faith in humanity. And the energy to put it out there, to help a child when they don’t know they need help, or know how to ask without feeling humiliated. I was that kind of child, and a few really good teachers made the difference in my life and gave me a reason to try, instead of giving up. Thank you to all those teachers, and to you, Ms. Grant.
