Emotions have run high these days, anger and division once again spreading across the land … and then this gentle, friendly, kind Muslim taxi driver with the beard and the cap welcomes me into his cab and talks for 24 blocks. He works 365 days a year. He does not let the job or the world grind him down and dim his light. These things remind me of the goodness in most people, and I check my assumptions at the taxi door and say, Thank you for teaching me, as well as reminding me. It’s raining, and that’s fine, too!
