Did I miss anything? Covid Online learning?

Did I miss anything?

Reine Azzi posted on Fb a poem by Tom Wayman 

Every time a student asks if they missed anything important… I plan on using parts of this poem ☺️

Have you missed anything?

Nothing. When we realized you weren’t here,

We sat with our hands folded on our desks in silence, for the full two hours

Everything. I gave an exam worth 40% of the grade for this term
And assigned some reading due today
On which I’m about to hand out a quiz worth 50%

Nothing. None of the content of this course has value or meaning
Take as many days off as you like:
Any activities we undertake as a class
I assure you will not matter, either to you or me, and are without purpose

Everything. A few minutes after we began last time ,

A shaft of light suddenly descended and an angel or other heavenly being Appeared and revealed to us what each woman or man must do to attain Divine wisdom in this life and the hereafter.

This is the last time the class will meet before we disperse to bring the good News to all people on earth.

Nothing. When you are not present, how could something significant occur?

Everything. Contained in this classroom is a microcosm

Of human Experience, assembled for you to query and examine and ponder.

This is not the only place such an opportunity has been gathered,

But it was one place. And you weren’t here…

Tom Wayman
