Kathy talked to our students about five things learning, laughing, loving, loss, and living. Kathy talked to the students about how these things helped her through the struggles of going blind as a young child. She told the students about the wonderful gifts God gives each of us and that learning, laughing, loving, losing, and living have helped her become the person she is today. It was a wonderful message for our students!
