It would have been good enough to know that 758 local students cleaned up 18 miles of our coastline Friday in conjunction with the 27th annual California Coastal Cleanup.

Teachers Joe Gillespie and Janice Mize shared the work of more than 100 seventh-grade students who wrote poems or drew Oceans Day-related pictures. Their talent knocked my socks off.
I’ve never been able to draw, but I began writing poetry when I was in middle school. The first time I saw one of my poems in print I experienced a rush of self-worth and accomplishment. It made me so proud, and made my folks proud too. And it inspired me to continue writing through college and seek a career where I’ve worked with the written word for nearly four decades.
