Beautiful, inspirational & poignant. Words which the ignorance of the students in Manchester fail to see the strength of these words & how they touch & inspire. Wasted upon many a Snowflake

Excellent. I showed this with two year 10 groups and two year 11 group at my school. Some of the students are getting together to make their own version. The older students took away copies of the poem as leavers presents.
