For Karen

Last Wednesday night, our friend Karen suddenly passed away.  It appeared that Karen, who was in her early forties, died from multiple causes due to a benign tumour inside her uterus which had grown to the size a melon.

She was loved by many people all over the world and always had a positive outlook on life.  I worked with her for the past 2 months, developing new teaching ideas and she shared with me a video by Taylor Mali who, along with being a teacher is also a Def Poet.  His words inspired her to continue teaching and making the world a better place.

Her favourite video is below.
