>I Was Not Alone

>Some of my colleagues and I spend our Sunday afternoons at school, catching up on grading, correcting, and planning for the week ahead. I guess we’re not alone…Custodial staff are there too.

There’s an older Filipino man in his seventies, who comes to work every day, making sure that our campus is clean safe for the children. He was on campus today, mowing the lawns and raking all of the leaves that have fallen off the trees. Other people his age probably spend their Sundays relaxing at home, maybe enjoying time with their grandchildren. He should be doing the same thing.

I’m not sure why he was complled to come to school today to work on the landscape, but I sure do appreciate him for being there.
