Saying Goodbye...
I thought I'd share this beautiful message that I received from Mimi yesterday. I was so impressed by her use of quality quotes and her ability to reflect deeply on our journey and think of the bigger picture...

Hello Mr.Buxton! I have been thinking and have come to a conclusion that when I find a great technology thing I share it with u first. i was wondering if when u were at signapor, u could email me so if I come across and interesting website i could share it with u! Hope u count your life by not how many breaths u take but by how many movements that take your breath away. That is one of my favorite quotes. You always did have that special something. You acted as if nothing was impossible. You made others near you happy and high spirited. I always admired your passion for teaching.
I may not get there with you but I want you to know the day we get to the promised land.

He reminds me of  you, a strong passionate man. This is my favorite quote. Hope you inspire many more kids like me in Asia. If you do come back in 5 years my brother might have you. At first I was sad but I realized it is like u were prepareing us for this. U taught us how to be independent people. I stopped to think and i think of this as a test almost. Moving on is the hardest test we could take. It is like leaving someone but it is even harder knowing they r leaving too and it isn't just I feeling. We don't need to worry because we know that will get us no were. I hope u have a great time in Asia, and hope u can email me.

---This is Mimi signing off :)

P.S. i have to say you are the best teacher I have ever had! Thank you so much for such amazing experience this year.
