Driving Wisdom

A little inspiration to end your work week. This is an anectdotal rendition of a delightful happening that I witnessed as I headed to work this morning:

The bus driver was as black as tar-covered pavements where many journeys find their miles to travel. As he let the students off at the stop in front of their high school, a thunderous yet benevolent rumbling began. He said loudly, "Aristotle once said, 'The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.' Get your education today!" A teenage boy responded by sharing an endearing fist bump with the driver before he hopped off. I smiled and realized that here, there is a village that raises the children.
