How to say goodbye..

How do you say goodbye to the people you work with, people who are your friends? How do you say goodbye to preschool children who you love, whose knees you have bandaged and cheeks you have kissed. How do you say goodbye to a job that you love and watch them shut down the building. How does a college decide that closing the childcare center is a way to save money? A childcare center than has been open for over 30 years with many of the original teachers? How can I be proud of a Master's degree in Education from a college that closes a preschool. Don't they realize that they are hypocrites. I hate when money becomes for important than education.

I'm going to miss the hugs, jokes, and joy that you get from being with children. They are like my siblings and I am going to miss them so much. I have cried twice today at work. I hate this.

That is a sad situation. It's terrible to seeing such drastic measures.
