There are some lessons students will never learn inside of the classroom. Six boys who school at the Roxbury Latin boys school in Boston learned a powerful lesson outside of the classroom that they will never forget.
The school’s assistant principal named Mike Pojman took the initiative that gave the students the chance to give back to the society.
The boys acted as pallbearers for a homeless man during his funeral. The boys carried the coffins and recited poems and verses in honor of the man. However, the boys did not know the man or any of his family members.
One of the boys made a powerful speech that will move you to tears. Although they are not related to the man, the boys consider themselves as his sons. During his speech, the boy says he is honored to stand before him to commemorate his life.
Following this experience, the young men got a new perspective of life and death. They are glad to be part of the team that gave back to the society.
