    I was on the bus the other day when I saw a complete stranger wish a young student good luck on what she was studying, as he left the bus. She looked up so surprised, thanked him and the smile didn't leave her face for the remainder of her ride. The funny thing was I was smiling too. It makes my heart happy to see goodness in the world. - 12/9/2010   7:24:42 PM
