“Touched by an Angel” by Maya Angelou

Mrs. Pietrowski says of her favorite poem:
“I love this poem because it speaks about being courageous enough to stand up for what we believe in.
Many people are intimidated by speaking the truth and doing the right thing. We should notice, choose to
do something, and then act upon that choice. It is the intrinsic value of doing the right thing that will set
us free.”

“The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost

Mrs. L. Marzano says:
“Most people follow the leader. It takes guts to stand up and make your own choices and not follow the
usual path. But for those of us who do, we are the happier for it.” These last lines of the poem say it all.

Mrs. J. Bradford says:
“My father shared it me with when I was young and when I read it—it really spoke to me in the same way
it did for him. Each of use often thought that we took the road less travelled, but sometimes pondered how
different our lives may have been had we never followed the „safe‟ or more common path.”
