    How To Help/what Can I Do For My Former Teacher? When i was in 4th grade, i had this awesome teacher named mr. Casten. He was by far the best techer i’ve ever had. He had two beautiful children. After that school year, he and his wife had another daughter named Ella. A couple years later, when my younger brother got mr. Casten for his 4th grade teacher, something went wrong with Ella. She was diagnosed with SMA, or Spinal Muscular Atrophy. It is a rare and deadly disease. With no cure, Ella will live a short life. Mr. Casten’s world was turned upside down. There was many fundraisers. Keep in mind, me and mr. Casten had a special, i guess, “connection” when he taught me. Today, the largest of all fundraisers was held. Many,many people showed up, even Keenan Cahill!! So, i just feel so bad for him, and it just breaks my heart. I’ve been wanting to help, but i dont know how. At the fundraiser, me and my best friend went and gave him a hug, and gave him Oreos (his favorite food). He said thank you for coming. I just really want to show my appreciation for him. And we had a conversation on facebook, here it is. Oh, by the way, he hates pears. And i love joking around with him. Me:Hi i know you dont want to facebook with me, but say hi to ella for me!! And eat some pears!! Bye!
    Him:I will say hi…I am holding her hand while she falls asleep…I will not, however, eat pears.
    Me:Hahahaha thanks 🙂
    It just touched my heart…he said he was holding her hand while she falls asleep…she’s now in the hospital…
    Oh, I’m tearing up. Thank you for all your help. Also, I’m only in 6th grade, so i can’t donate a ton of money or anything like that. THANK YOU!! ;(
    i think she’s 1 1/2 yrs

      The only thing you can do is be there for him. A little girl (nine) died of this and it came as a shock to everyone because she was doing so well! She was born with it and because of it hadn’t been able to walk or stand on her own but about a month before she pasted away for the first time ever she stood up on her own.

  • Why Is That People Complain About Black History Month But Dont Complain About The Other Months? So Black Americans cant have their own month? Why the double standards and hypocrisy?

      I think it is retarded to have a black history month. Most of those other things you listed are to raise awareness for things like disorders and illnesses.

      The jews were treated worse then the blacks more recently and they don’t have a holocaust month. Atheists and every religion other than catholics were tortured in the Spanish Inquisition. Do they have a month? White people get the most disadvantages nowadays and we don’t have a month.

      If you don’t believe me go look at the requirements for standardized testing, if you are white you have to score higher on your exam in order to pass. High schools are allowed to have a Minority Student Union, Ebony Club, Black Honor Society. White clubs are not allowed due to racism. White people have a harder time getting on government assistance. I have tourettes and Autism and I am unable to get on government assistance. My disability lawyer even said (in joking) “too bad you are not black, then it would be easier to get you ssi”. There is a channel called BET and a magizine called Ebony. Do you see a white magazine or a white only tv channel? They even have their own award shows that only give awards to black actors, singers, etc. They are allowed to call themselves the “N” word without getting in trouble.

      Now I expect to get thumbs down. But just ponder this. If my yahoo avater was black would you have thumbed me down for saying these things? probably not.
