I Love Every Aspect of this Story

Strangers meet on a subway. A forty-year-old father struggling with math problems he hasn’t seen for thirty years so he can help his young son do better in school. Seated next to him is a man who used to be a math teacher and offers to help. Across the aisle is a woman who takes it all in, is touched, and shares the moment with the world.

We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders.

      Me too. I love that you used the word “naturally” as I believe it is in the nature of most people to show kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and mercy. It can be easy to forget with all the distractions that lead us to focus our minds elsewhere.
