Yes, Charlotte,
I remember all the people from our workshop in Washington.  I was
absolutely thrilled to see them all on tv, like seeing old friends. Being
happy for the success of people you care about made it all have even more
emotional impact, if that is possible. Seeing their delighted, triumphant
faces, touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes.  They really
deserved this outstanding success after working so long and hard.

 I also hope that my students watched it all,  I told them often enough. 
Several of my students are in different parts of the world now for the
summer. I teach ESL, and some went home for vacation; to Hong Kong, to
India, and to Puerto Rico.  I hope they were able to share the excitement
wherever they were. Barb
