Bus Driver Sees Kids' Treatment To Boy On Bus, Writes Note To Parents That's Going Viral
Bullies seem to get all the press in this day and age and even though it is very important to point out some of the horrible realities in our world today it is also important to point out the incredible realities.
This is what bus driver Cindy Clausen is doing. While driving the school she noticed two students doing something shocking to a disabled boy.
Instead of making fun of and bullying another boy on her bus with a disability, the children, a brother and sister, befriended the boy and made him feel included! They've asked to sit with him, offered to helped him on and off the bus, and talked to him about his day.
It was clear to Cindy that their parents were showing them the right way to treat people at home!
Instead of letting the days pass without complementing the parents behind the sweet brother-sister duo, Annaliese and Jorge, Cindy penned a letter and sent it home with them.
Before handing the letter over to the family, she shared it with the Love What Matters Facebook page:
"I am compelled to write to tell you how beautiful your children are, inside and out! This can only come from the home, your patience and guidance, the examples that you set and teach.
I have a child on my bus named Jackson. Both of your children have showed him so much compassion and support. Every day your children ask if they can sit with Jackson.
Some days Jackson is a little sad getting on the bus but as soon as he sees Annaliese and Jorge he smiles. Jackson has difficulties walking and it takes a bit for him to get to his seat.
Today Annaliese looked out from around her seat and said, 'come on Jackson, you can do it" and when we arrived at school, Jackson took it upon himself to carry out his backpack!
I know you know how wonderful your children are, but I wanted you to know that it shows!"
Annaliese and Jorge's parents were thrilled to hear their children were being kind to others and taking the valuable lessons they were taught and applying it in real-life situations! They couldn't have been more proud!
