There is this website I go to every once in a while, www.zenpencils.com, where the artist creates comic book panels that complement inspirational quotes. I hadn't been on it in a while, so I visited it and came across one of their more recent panels, called "What Teachers Make," based on a poem by a man named Taylor Mali. What Teachers Make (panel) (Move your mouse to reveal the content) What Teachers Make (panel) (open) What Teachers Make (panel) (close) The comic itself was already enough to make me emotional. But it piqued my interest, so I had to know who this Taylor Mali was. I did some digging and found a video of Taylor Mali performing the poem himself at the National Poetry Slam. I thought the comic made me emotional; the video literally brought me to tears. I have since watched and re-watched the video, and it has the same effect on me, every single time.
