This event filled day showed me a lot about others

This day was a very event filled day that shown me a lot about others when I believed it couldn't happen to them because I see them in school and they're basically happy but I know it's a mask waiting to be town down, just like I wear every day of my life. I came in here with no expectations and now I come out with knowledge about unique people and about teachers who people believe have no lives except teaching. The hardest thing today was see everybody gather courage to tell hardships within their lives. It showed me how much they've been trying and how much they've succeeded. I hope everything learned will not go in one ear and out the other for all the grade 10's. Thank you for everything. Sorry I couldn't write more. (original message)
