Justin Slocum Bailey took a language most people consider long dead and brought it to life as if it were the lyrics to my son’s favorite song.  He not only taught Evan the joys of language—all language—but he also inspired him to approach life as a deep thinker, a global communicator, and a passionate advocate for the interconnectedness of all people.  And he ignited in him a passion for learning that has extended into every part of his life. I will be forever grateful.
