Dear Mrs. Smith:
Some difficult lessons are best learned early in life so that those lessons get factored in all decisions for the present and future. When everything goes smoothly, we are often lulled into thinking the road ahead will always be easy to navigate. When we are confronted with adversity, especially severe adversity, it jars us into realizing how fragile life is, how unpredictable, and helps us to sort out what is not worth fussing about from what is really important. So many people talk about their dreams of traveling when, by a little prioritizing here and there and a few sacrifices here and there they could go anywhere they want when they want to go and not wait a lifetime hoping for some distant opportunity to travel.

I go to so many places, expensive places, where, walking beside me in a museum or on a beautiful and historic street, there is a back-packing student who will shop for dinner in a cheese shop and a bakery and overnight in a hostel, but there right there with me in places like Monaco or Budapest or Paris or Rome. And if you really value education, there really is no better place than the world itself as the most valuable classroom experience.

I am so glad that I learned about the situation faced by the Webber Township HS Senior Class. I am even happier that I could play a role in uplifting their spirits by providing them with an opportunity to celebrate their graduation and highlight this transitioning period for them in a carefree environment in Branson, MO to put back into the equation the fun of a senior trip that seemed for a while to be something that wouldn't/couldn't happen.
I guess that the lesson of this part of the story is that life's surprises can sometimes also be very good. These teens deserve at least that! They are a very special group of teens and I'm sure their families, friends, and teachers are very proud of them. I know I sure am!

Default Thread Title:  And Aren't You All As Sweet As You Can Be to Post Such Lovely Notes!

Hope you are studying as hard as you can to get the most out of these last months at Webber Township High School! Clearly, you've been taught the value of writing a thank you note! Your messages were wonderful to read. Let me know what's going on as you prepare for graduation. . . and your senior trip to Branson!

When Stephanie first told me about the situation your school was in and why I was very impressed with selflessness of the senior class and compassion and understanding your decision to forgo the senior class trip in order to donate the monies to Derek's family to assist him. That selfless act really does deserve recognition, though of course none was expected when you made the decision.

The senior class as well as your instructors and families deserve recognition as well for instilling in you compassion and strong morals.

I'm so glad Stephanie was able to orchestrate this trip for your class and look forward to hearing more stories about your class, how Derek is doing, and the experiences and hurdles you all face along the way.

I'm sure your trip to Branson will be fantastic! Please keep us posted with updates...we're looking forward to seeing pictures from your trip!

Best wishes!
Dru

Default Thread Title:  Seniors from Webber Township HS Going to Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede!

Well, the Stephanie Abrams Travel Fairy Godmother has a new surprise to add to your Senior Trip to Branson, MO. In addition to going to the Titanic Museum Attraction, all of you and your chaperons are going to Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede and Dinner Show while you are in Branson, Missouri! Hee-Haw! Add that to staying at the Branson Hilton Garden Inn and you're in clover! The Hilton Garden Inn, which is across the street from the Branson Convention Center, is attached to the mall and I think that will give you another added attraction during your stay in Branson!

More surprises to come!
Hugs from the Stephanie Abrams Travel Fairy Godmother,

Exclamation Thread Title:  Thank You Travel Fairy Godmother!

I thank you immensely for taking time and money out of your busy schedule and sending us seniors to Branson! I still don't know how you heard about what we did, and I still don't understand why you're giving us a Senior Trip, but I am very grateful. I apologize if we seemed lackluster when we received the news about this unbelievable gift we would receive, but we were, and still are, in shock about it.

My class really appreciate the fact that you awarded us with this trip! We honestly feel that we don't deserve it and what we did for Derek was for his benefit and we did it just so he can get better. We never expected to get anything out of this. Again, we feel very grateful for your kindness! Thank you again for awarding us with this trip!

Thank you so much for all that you have done for us. When we all decided to give up our senior trip we all accepted that we wouldn't get a trip. My mom always tells me there are more good people in the world then there are bad. I never believed her but you are living proof of that.

Thank You So Very Much,
Courtney Schrum

I would like to thank you very much for giving this trip to my classmates and I. We are so grateful, we had no idea what to say when you told us and it didn't hit us until later about what was really happening. We are all looking forward to this trip! Thank You!
