This is truly beautiful and brought tears to my eyes. I can relate deeply to this because I experience something similar with my own dad. Sitting at my laptop and reading through this, I can’t help but feel guilty for not spending as much time outside as I should. This piece really makes you think.

This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other.

If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
