    Pretty neat. I love when he said school can't be fun. My kids think some of the stuff we do is fun!

    Here's the synopsis, MrsC: John O'Connor is a 70-year-old math teacher at a boys' high school in Los Angeles; he's all business in the classroom. But one of his students was shocked to discover that Mr. O'Connor (a) is the leading blood donor at Children's Hospital of LA and (b) for years he's volunteered his time to cuddle and feed very, very ill babies and young children when their parents can't be there. The clip ended with the student stating that he's taking Mr. O'Connor as his model for a life of service.

    It's a lovely story to be able to share, MrsC: thanks for giving me the occasion.
