Video Friday – I Will Remember You

March 2007 to February 2008, I taught kindergarten in Seoul, South Korea. That year I also had a tutoring student. One of my little girls realized in September that at the end of the year (which in Korea is February) I would be leaving. Leaving the country, leaving her life, she’d never see me again. She was mad. I guess she wanted to get it out of the way early. Anyway, one afternoon as I was dealing with that, I was heading to my tutoring student when this song came on my iPod. Like a ton of bricks all her anger and my own sorrow at losing these kids who I loved like they were my own hit me and I nearly started to bawl in the middle of the sidewalk in Seoul. I pulled myself together and got to my appointment, but I couldn’t listen to this song for years after.
