A New Beginning

Just someone in search of meaning through art, film and poetry
I was driving home from church when I stopped to wave hello at one of my students.  She smiled and said “hi” as I drove past her.  Then she yelled, “Luis, stop!”  She ran to my car and gave me a plate full of Korean pastries filled with sweet beans and shaped like fish.  There must have been ten pastries on the plate and I know she bought them for her and her sister to share but she decided to give them all to me.  It was her way of saying thank you for helping her with the SAT, ACT, and her college applications.  It was her way of expressing her gratitude for me believing in her.  I could not help but cry at her genuine expression of appreciation.  I think most people are mean and selfish but I think she is starting to change my mind.  God bless you and your family wherever you are.  I know you will never read this, but thank you so much for everything.
