  • When my first children's book was published

    當我的第一本童書

  • in 2001,

    在 2001 年出版時,

  • I returned to my old elementary school

    我回到我的小學

  • to talk to the students about being an author

    和學生交流,

  • and an illustrator,

    談論了身為作家和插畫家的經歷。

  • and when I was setting up my slide projector

    當我正在準備我的投影機時,

  • in the cafetorium,

    就在學校餐廳大禮堂,

  • I looked across the room,

    我望了一下禮堂內,

  • and there she was:

    我看到了她,

  • my old lunch lady.

    我小時候的午餐阿姨。

  • She was still there at the school

    那時候,她仍然在學校服務。

  • and she was busily preparing lunches for the day.

    她當時正忙著準備著當天的午餐。

  • So I approached her to say hello,

    我走向她,並向她打聲招呼。

  • and I said, "Hi, Jeannie! How are you?"

    我對她說:「嗨,金妮!你好嗎?」

  • And she looked at me, and I could tell

    然後她望著我,

  • that she recognized me,

    我知道她大概認出我來,

  • but she couldn't quite place me, and she looked at me and she said,

    但她好像不太確定。

  • "Stephen Krosoczka?"

    然後,她看著我說:

  • And I was amazed that she knew I was a Krosoczka,

    「史蒂芬・古莎斯卡?」

  • but Stephen is my uncle who is 20 years older than I am,

    然後,我很驚訝

  • and she had been his lunch lady when he was a kid.

    她還記得我姓古莎斯卡。

  • And she started telling me about her grandkids,

    但是,史蒂芬是我叔叔,

  • and that blew my mind.

    他比我整整大了 20歲。

  • My lunch lady had grandkids,

    他還小的時候,她也是他的午餐阿姨。

  • and therefore kids,

    她開始告訴我她孫子們的事,

  • and therefore left school at the end of the day?

    這一切實在太震撼了!

  • I thought she lived in the cafeteria

    我的午餐阿姨竟然有孫子,

  • with the serving spoons.

    這表示她有兒女,也表示

  • I had never thought about any of that before.

    她每晚都會下班離開學校?

  • Well, that chance encounter inspired my imagination,

    我一直以為她住在學校餐廳和湯匙當室友,

  • and I created the Lunch Lady graphic novel series,

    我以前從來沒想過有這些事情。

  • a series of comics about a lunch lady

    所以,那一次的機緣

  • who uses her fish stick nunchucks

    激發了我的想像力,

  • to fight off evil cyborg substitutes,

    我創作了一系列漫畫小說:午餐俠女。

  • a school bus monster, and mutant mathletes,

    這一系列的漫畫

  • and the end of every book,

    是關於一位午餐阿姨,

  • they get the bad guy with their hairnet,

    她會用她的麥香魚雙截棍

  • and they proclaim, "Justice is served!"

    打擊邪惡的機器人、

  • (Laughter) (Applause)

    一個校車怪獸以及變種數學家。

  • And it's been amazing, because the series

    每本書的結局都是,

  • was so welcomed into the reading lives of children,

    她們會用廚娘網帽,逮捕犯人。

  • and they sent me the most amazing letters

    然後,她們會大聲高呼: 「正義上菜!」

  • and cards and artwork.

    ( 笑聲和掌聲 )

  • And I would notice as I would visit schools,

    這一切實在太酷了!

  • the lunch staff would be involved in the programming

    因為一直以來這一系列,

  • in a very meaningful way.

    在孩子的閱讀世界裡很受歡迎。

  • And coast to coast,

    孩子們寄給我看過最棒的信件、

  • all of the lunch ladies told me the same thing:

    卡片以及畫作。

  • "Thank you for making a superhero in our likeness."

    然後,當我參訪學校時我會注意到

  • Because the lunch lady has not been treated

    餐廳員工會一同參與活動,

  • very kindly in popular culture over time.

    以一種很有意義的方式參與。

  • But it meant the most to Jeannie.

    從東岸到西岸,

  • When the books were first published,

    所有的午餐阿姨

  • I invited her to the book launch party,

    都告訴我一樣的事情。

  • and in front of everyone there,

    感謝你以我們的形象

  • everyone she had fed over the years,

    打造一個超級英雄。

  • I gave her a piece of artwork and some books.

    因為,午餐阿姨們在過去都沒有

  • And two years after this photo was taken,

    被主流社會好好對待過。

  • she passed away,

    但對於金妮最為特別,

  • and I attended her wake,

    當漫畫第一次出版時,

  • and nothing could have prepared me for what I saw there,

    我邀請她參加新書出版派對。

  • because next to her casket was this painting,

    當時在眾人的面前,

  • and her husband told me it meant so much to her

    所有她所服務過的人們,

  • that I had acknowledged her hard work,

    我送給她一幅畫作和一些書籍。

  • I had validated what she did.

    拍完這張照片的兩年後,

  • And that inspired me to create a day

    她過世了。

  • where we could recreate that feeling

    我參加了她的告別式。

  • in cafeterias across the country:

    我完全沒想到 會在告別式看到一樣東西,

  • School Lunch Hero Day, a day where kids

    因為,在她的棺木旁邊

  • can make creative projects for their lunch staff.

    放的就是這幅畫。

  • And I partnered with the School Nutrition Association,

    她先生告訴我,

  • and did you know that a little over 30 million kids

    這幅畫對她意義非凡。

  • participate in school lunch programs every day.

    因為我看到她的工作表現。

  • That equals up to a little over five billion lunches

    我肯定她所付出的一切。

  • made every school year.

    這件事啟發我打造一個紀念日,

  • And the stories of heroism go well beyond

    讓我們大家可以重溫那份感覺,

  • just a kid getting a few extra chicken nuggets

    就在全國各地的學校餐廳裡:

  • on their lunch tray.

    「校園午餐英雄日」。

  • There is Ms. Brenda in California,

    這一天,小朋友們會做一些創意作品

  • who keeps a close eye on every student that comes through her line

    送給他們的餐廳員工。

  • and then reports back to the guidance counselor

    我也與「校園營養協會」合作。

  • if anything is amiss.

    你們是否知道有超過 30 萬個兒童,

  • There are the lunch ladies in Kentucky

    每天參加學校的營養午餐。

  • who realized that 67 percent of their students

    每一年大約超過 50 億份午餐,

  • relied on those meals every day,

    來自全美各校。

  • and they were going without food over the summer,

    這些英雄故事不僅僅只是

  • so they retrofitted a school bus

    小朋友在午餐盤上多拿到一些雞塊。

  • to create a mobile feeding unit,

    有一位在加州的布蘭達女士,

  • and they traveled around the neighborhoods

    她會注意每一個她所服務的學生,

  • feedings 500 kids a day during the summer.

    然後回報給輔導員

  • And kids made the most amazing projects.

    學生有任何不對勁的地方。

  • I knew they would.

    有一群位於肯塔基州的午餐阿姨們,

  • Kids made hamburger cards

    她們發現 67% 的學生

  • that were made out of construction paper.

    每天必須依靠這一頓午餐。

  • They took photos of their lunch lady's head

    而這些學生在暑假時,沒東西吃。

  • and plastered it onto my cartoon lunch lady

    所以,她們改裝了一台校車,

  • and fixed that to a milk carton

    打造了一個移動供應站

  • and presented them with flowers.

    在周圍社區穿行,

  • And they made their own comics,

    在暑假時,她們一天餵養 500 個小朋友。

  • starring the cartoon lunch lady

    小朋友做了全世界最棒的勞作,

  • alongside their actual lunch ladies.

    我早就知道,他們很棒的。

  • And they made thank you pizzas,

    小朋友製作了漢堡卡片,

  • where every kid signed a different topping

    用勞作紙製作而成。

  • of a construction paper pizza.

    他們拍了一張張午餐阿姨的大頭照,

  • For me, I was so moved by the response

    接上我漫畫「午餐俠女」的身體,

  • that came from the lunch ladies,

    然後貼在牛奶盒上

  • because one woman said to me, she said,

    和花朵一起展示。

  • "Before this day, I felt like I was

    他們自創自己的漫畫,

  • at the end of the planet at this school.

    主要演員為「午餐俠女」,

  • I didn't think that anyone noticed us down here."

    以及他們現實生活中的午餐阿姨。

  • Another woman said to me,

    他們製作了「感恩比薩」,

  • "You know, what I got out of this

    小朋友為每一個不同的配料上簽名,

  • is that what I do is important."

    在一個個勞作紙做成的比薩上面。

  • And of course what she does is important.

    對我而言,我好感動地

  • What they all do is important.

    看到午餐阿姨們的反應。

  • They're feeding our children every single day,

    因為,有一位女士跟我說,

  • and before a child can learn,

    在今天以前,我總覺得

  • their belly needs to be full,

    自己置身於學校的邊緣角落。

  • and these women and men

    我不覺得會有人注意到我們。

  • are working on the front lines to create

    另一位女士則告訴我,

  • an educated society.

    你知道嗎,我透過這個活動,

  • So I hope that

    了解到我的工作如此重要。

  • you don't wait for School Lunch Hero Day

    她的工作當然很重要,

  • to say thank you to your lunch staff,

    她們所從事的一切如此有意義。

  • and I hope that you remember

    每一天,她們為我們的孩子提供食物。

  • how powerful a thank you can be.

    在孩子開始學習之前,

  • A thank you can change a life.

    他們的肚子需要填飽。

  • It changes the life of the person who receives it,

    而這些工作人員,

  • and it changes the life of the person

    就在最前線工作,

  • who expresses it.

    並打造一個深具教育意義的社會。

  • Thank you.

    因此,我希望

  • (Applause)

    大家不必等到校園午餐英雄日,
