Daily Teaching for Friday, August 17th

Yesterday I had the opportunity to take the bus to the Mall. To be quite honest, I had to get out of the house because there was far too much chaos and it made the Mall seem like a peaceful alternative. Along the way a man got on the bus at a stop near a grocery store. He struggled onto the bus with two shopping bags of groceries and stood at the front of the bus. A young man actually offered his seat to the man with the groceries. You don’t see that much anymore. The man thanked him but declined, saying he was getting off in a couple of stops. When we reached the end of the line and got off the bus I shook the young man’s hand and said how much I appreciated his kindness. If we want the world to be a kinder, gentler place, we have to acknowledge impressive people!
