H is for highly creative people.  I read this article and was inspired:

It made me think more about the value of creativity in education.  I believe it is important to help spark students’ creativity within the curriculum—they must know that there is nothing wrong with thinking outside the box.  It should be encouraged, because it is this kind of “outside the box” thinking that has the potential to change the world!  I remember as a young student, I would often be reprimanded by my teachers for daydreaming during class.  While it would have been more advantageous to stay focused on the lectures, I still think that dreaming should be encouraged in the classroom.
