A Dedication to Sarah Bragg

Sunfast by Lisa Arnold

A single sunbeam in a sky of endless clouds.
What can it accomplish?
A quiet mission seeking no praise.
What could be its purpose?
A patch of warmth on a chilled earth,
Providing a blanket of compassion.
A light of ardor to turn our faces unto,
Grateful souls soaking up the hope.
A band of optimism,
overcoming even the darkest storms.
A ray of inspiration,
bridging the gaps of humankind.
A single sunbeam in a sky of endless clouds.
What could be its legacy?

A Dedication from Connie Kerr to Sarah Bragg

Sept. 1958, just a couple months before I was born, Sarah Anne Bragg was born. We were the same age. Shortly after her birthday this year - way too young, she passed away.
From living in a small town, I’ve known Sarah since High School. I watched her marry her high school sweetheart, have children, and grandchildren. We weren’t close friends, but she always had a smile for me, and I considered her a friend. For the past 10 years, I taught in the room just down the hall from her room at Clay County High School. I have watched her friendships, new and old, come but never go. Friends with a smile, forever and always.
This past week has been so surreal… Walking among the students that loved her so much… I have heard from so many how she had helped them. Some with life lessons that they will take through life, and, like me, simple little things that I remembered this week that she has given, just because. Some simply an uplifting moment with that contagious smile that she always shared so freely.
It’s always hard to say goodbye; I will always remember her… Today, I think about and pray for her family, her students, and her friends. May we always cherish the gifts she gave, especially her smile.
