“As I was sitting parked in my bus at the school this morning, I saw my daughter walking to a different spot than where she usually goes. I looked, and a group had formed. A large circle of students.
First thought? ‘Oh no…there’s going to be a fight!’ I watched, the circle grew, and I noticed something. They were surrounding the flag pole. Then, it happened. They started praying. They were quietly holding hands, and praying. There were tears in my eyes. These young people dropped everything, put aside their differences, and prayed for the staff, their school, and our country. There was no show boating, no goofing around. They gathered quietly, and did what they set out to do. I hope they prayed for all of us as well.
I had to leave to do another run, but got some pictures as I waited for my students to board. I can’t wait for her to come home, so I can ask her about it.
My baby girl, I’m so proud of you. You stand up for what you believe in, and keep doing the right things. It was a wonderful sight to behold, especially after all of the discord going on lately in the world. My heart is full.”
