On May 17, 2017, was the last visit for Bridging Generations students from Star Academy and Alma Via residents. Star Academy in San Rafael is a special education school for students with learning disabilities. You can't believe how well it has worked this year. So much so that these same students will be back next year even though they will be a grade higher. Their teacher said one girl even cried if the resident she visited was too sick to come out when they visited.
Here are four pictures from their last visit. The last one is so poignant I got tears in my eyes as student Bennet says goodbye to resident Joe, who is over 100 years old.
Sometimes we get so bogged down in our daily lives that we forget how much LITA means to so many.
