This woman is amazing….
She provides kids in Chicago with a place to stay, an adult to talk to, and someone who trusts them. She is a lifeline for kids who don’t have one.
She has done nothing more than open her home to kids who need a place to go. She hasn’t asked for cookies, rewards, or praise. She just helps people out by simply treating them like human beings.
So, in the spirit of the holiday season, take a page out of her book, and treat everyone like a full human being worthy of dignity and respect. Don’t assume anything about them, and ask them about their stories, hopes and dreams.
That’s your challenge for the week. If you learn something new or hear a cool story, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll publish it.
Readers, are there any other everyday heroes you would like to acknowledge? Honor them in the comments.
