Bro. Howard! I was in one of your math classes at BYU Idaho. It was the matrix class that you taught. All about matrices, trying to remember the name. It was linear algebra. Took it from you in the fall semester of 2010. I loved the stories you shared in class and am glad that I found this story on facebook. I loved this story and am glad you could share yet another one with me.

This is beautiful. Thank you. I was Noelle in high school. What a difference if this had happened to me. Fortunately, in college, it did. And I married him. Best decision ever.

What a courageous group of young men! And what a very lucky girl to have them as friends!

Behold the gratification of working with the youth.

Don't your schools have anti-bullying policies? This is so offensive to think that a high school student can continue to slap a girl without anyone intervening. And that slap is considered an assault in Australia, & the young man should be reported to the police. Plain and simple.

This made me cry. So many teenage girls do not realize how much value they have or what possibilities exist for them, and, I suspect, neither do a lot of teenage boys. Telling one another, in whatever way, can make such a difference. Even adults can do that. I know they did for me. Even though I am now 78, I remember and appreciate the kind words I heard as a teenager.
