on students

The past week, I arrived in class to see a hand-written letter on my desk. One of the students had written a page long letter explaining his absences for the past 3 weeks of class. I know that it's important for the students to be in class, and I take their absences seriously. But something about this students' note struck me as being so funny and sincere. I looked up at the student to see him turn away abashedly. I couldn't help but smile. The end of the note went like this: "I've very sorry I have forgotten to inform you before I leave the school. I really wish you can forgive me! I know you are still make me as your friend, aren't you?" Yes Harold, I accept your apology...I can still make you as my friend.
