Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Last night my son said something to me that I never thought I'd hear.
"Mom, I'm glad they put us through all that in our last school district."
I looked at him in disbelief. "Why would you say that?" I asked. (I imagined the hell it was, how stressed we were-something I would never want to go back to.)
"Because I know that I can survive it." was his reply. "They made me stronger. We took them on, and we won. When I grow up, I want to get one of those Nobel Peace Prizes for science. If we can do that, we can do anything."
And you know, by that look of determination in his eyes, I really think he could. Wow.
