2. Enjoy the day-t0-day things
“He has really inspired the students in his (class)room to just be happy and to just enjoy the day-to-day things we all take for granted,” Gallo said in September, when she organized an experience for Walter to “graduate” through all 12 grades.
3. Support each other
Fairfield school parent Cindy Thompson said she never knew of Walter before all the media attention of recent weeks.
She took time last month to celebrate his extraordinary life during a special graduation ceremony set up just for the spirited boy.
“In some ways this prompts others to look at each other and support each other,” Thompson said.
