Today’s nice stranger

fullsizeoutput_a.jpegI meet nice people when I ride my bike. Today’s was extra special. This is Ms. Brownlee. She took her public school 7th grade language arts class on a two-mile walk while each student carried 2 gallons of water as a way to bring to life the book they just read, A Long Walk to Water. They are also raising money to donate to Last year, the 7th grade donated $1300. The kids were so excited and proud to tell me what they were doing, and the teacher had perfect control while giving so much freedom to the students. It was refreshing and made me feel hopeful for the future. That’s what’s nice about bike riding. And teachers.
