Ethan's school did not give out the usual academic excellence awards to deserving students. Instead, the teachers did a survey and asked each student what he/she thinks of a particular classmate. The actual question and answer portion was videotaped and was presented and shown in wide screen during the ceremonies. The question went something like this: What do you think of (name of classmate)?

Crap! I was actually nervous as I awaited the answers from 9 of his classmates. The gist of the answers was something like this.

He is friends with everyone.

Ethan is funny.

He tries hard to spell.
He is my friend an he makes me laugh.

He is so funny.
He makes me laugh.

He works so hard to read and spell and he is so funny. He is my friend.

and so on and so forth.

I was worried that Ethan's citation would go something like this: for being the class clown who tries hard to read and spell....

When Ethan's name was finally called and he went up the stage for his citation and medal, I was fidgeting in my seat. My worst fear was far from realization for the citation was nothing like my perceived one. Teacher Michelle read: Ethan is friendly with everyone. He tries to soothe every hurt feelings and right misunderstandings among his classmates. He is always happy and gets along well with everyone. He is the class peacemaker.

Whew! Wow! We are all so proud of out little peacemaker.
