When we are young, we feel invincible. We are full of life and energy. We move through grades and start thinking about our career, our future spouse and children – we are all hope and smiles. But imagine if it wasn’t like that.
A’Ja hasn’t gotten the chance to have much of a normal life. She was in need of a kidney transplant and looking for a donor. But she never expected to find one where she did: her teacher.
A’Ja’s teacher chose to donate one of her kidneys so that A’Ja would be able to help him have a normal life. She said that this is what teachers do every day – they try to help. “I saw a human in need and I went out to help her.” This teacher may be modest about what she has done, but to A’Ja and her family, she will forever be a hero.
Today, A’Ja and her teacher enter the school together. Tears are shed and the applause goes wild. Wait until you see how the other students react!
