#FarrisStory: 'time to smell the coffee'

"I was inspired by a student in my class. I taught special educational vocational agriculture which was essentially home landscape maintenance. One student would come in each morning very cheerful and yell 'time to smell the coffee' every single morning. He was happy and ambitious at school and always did what he was told. I later found out his parents were in jail because they were operating a meth lab from the car in which they all lived. The son had been sent to foster parents to live. In spite of this his human spirit was untouched and I was privileged to have him as my student." - Allen from St. Augustine, FL
