This is how you lose her.

You lose her when you forget to remember the little things that mean the world to her: the sincerity in a stranger’s voice during a trip to the grocery, the delight of finding something lost or forgotten like a sticker from when she was five, the selflessness of a child giving a part of his meal to another, the scent of new books in the store, the surprise short but honest notes she tucks in her journal and others you could only see if you look closely.

You must remember when she forgets.

You lose her when you don’t notice that she notices everything about you: your use of the proper punctuation that tells her continuation rather than finality, your silence when you’re about to ask a question but you think anything you’re about to say to her would be silly, your mindless humming when it is too quiet, your handwriting when you sign your name in blank sheets of paper, your muted laughter when you are trying to be polite, and more and more of what you are, which you don’t even know about yourself, because she pays attention.

She remembers when you forget.

You lose her for every second you make her feel less and less of the beauty that she is. When you make her feel that she is replaceable. She wants to feel cherished. When you make her feel that you are fleeting. She wants you to stay. When you make her feel inadequate. She wants to know that she is enough and she does not need to change for you, nor for anyone else because she is she and she is beautiful, kind and good.

You must learn her.

You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.

You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.

And, this is how you keep her.

I thought that I could shed some light on the Malia school situation. I teach at a high school where this happens often. As a teacher it’s very frustrating and heartbreaking all at the same time. At our school we get the students who were raised in certain religious cults (too put it vaguely to keep things ambiguous and private), they have literally never been inside of a school or learned to be in what we consider normal circumstances. They take these kids and put them right into the grade of the age that they are. They do this regardless of their learning abilities. Most the time these kids, by no fault of their own, are not ready to be in that grade, and have barely learned how to read let alone who President Lincoln is. They don’t even know how school works, they don’t understand concepts of class time vs. break time, or that you have to be in a certain place at any given time.


I think that this situation is very similar to Malia’s. Her dad, if she is living with him, could choose an option that gives her extra education and none of us know what the school/principal/state/teachers know about her situation or what her story is so much of it is in the air. However it seems fairly likely that Malia is where the school has decided to put her, according to the laws of the state. This is long winded, but I just thought I could help answer some of your questions about why she is in “regular” school. The idea behind this concept is to keep them up to speed with a proper graduation date (before age 19) and get them adjusted as quickly as possible, even if it is a big shock. Hopefully Malia has the ability to recieve additional help while she is learning, both socially and educationally.

I take his hand, holding on tightly, preparing for the cameras, and dreading the moment when I will finally have to let go.
