Although youth are the future, it is teachers that shape tomorrow by forming the minds and hearts of the young. This is a privileged opportunity, a sacred and moral duty, and an exacting responsibility that is worthily met only by heroes and saints. We salute such army who have bravely forayed into the frontiers of online schooling and hurdled challenges if only never to abandon the minds and souls entrusted to their care. Like good shepherds, they suffer with their sheep, nonetheless consoling and providing for them despite thunder and storm. We thank them for rising above the worst; we also thank all students who make their teachers feel that their efforts are all worth it. Pax et bonum!
