Friday Two Cents: There Are Good People After All



Have you ever had days when you wonder if there are any civilized people of this rock of a planet? I have been through some crazy stuff and there are times when I truly think about this. Yet this week I have seen example upon example of people who are actually, pleasant.

It started with people when I am about to enter a store, bank or some other place. Many people would just walk past you or I would open the door for someone and they would not even say thank you, but not this week. I have had people say thank you to me and I even had people open the door for me. I would smile and say thank you and in return I would see them smiling. Even when I’m in the store I would smile and people with smile back. Amazing!
Then there are the students. For some reason they are being overly active in the activities I have for them and some even said thank you for some of the activities. Maybe it has something to do with us exploring the Star Wars universe but a lot of them were engaged and kept asking me questions about the subject matter. But this was a catalyst, those questions spurred more questions and then they even asked questions on other subject matters. The interaction with them was great. Mind you I felt exhausted at the end of the days this week but it was still amazing.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Yet I think that what put the icing on the cake was the reactions of people to my birthday. My birthday is on February 29th, yes I am a leap year baby. I only have a birthday once every 4 years. Many at the school know about this and a lot of the little children are sad for me because I can only celibate once every 4 years. But this year they are more excited about the day then I am. Even some of the adults seem happy for me to have my birthday. For the past two weeks I have had adults and students come up to me smiling saying “This is your birthday year isn’t it!” Or “How older are you now? My sister is still older than you.” It has been pretty overwhelming, in a good way.
I for one am not that overly excited about it but I see that many of the people I know are excited for me. This in turn makes me feel good inside. Not because I am celebrating my birthday but that people are excited for me. I even received a birthday card from a class I supplied in for a while. It was unexpected and wonderful at the same time. Then I foolishly left it in the class on Friday. I will get it on Monday and I will post it, yet these experiences have truly renewed my faith in people. I would appear that, there are good people out there after all.
