(CNN) - Pam Mathers was a half-mile away from the Boston Marathon finish line when bombs exploded Monday. The Michigan resident wasn't injured, but she didn't finish the race. Students back at Hamilton Elementary School in Troy, Michigan, where Mathers is principal, didn't want her months of training to end without celebration. They created a symbolic finish line so they could cheer her on, CNN affiliate WDIV reported.
That is so sweet of the students to do that for their principal! It shows how much these students appreciate their principal and teachers.

That's so wonderful of those students to be thinking so highly of their educaters!
This is a great story! I think that this shows the true strength and nature of Americans. We will persevere.
This is great! In moments like these you understand why teaching is such a great profession. Teachers give so much to their students, but get so much in return!
