Whose Plan Is It?
In the doctor’s waiting room two people sat near me reading magazines. The middle-aged woman looked up and said, “Can you believe this presidential campaign?” The other person looked up, as did I. “No, I can’t,” he replied. Our conversation evolved into a discussion of the needs in our city. The woman shared about a friend who was a vice principal at Baldwin Elementary, a public school lacking books for their library due to insufficient funding. We all agreed how tragic this was.
In a few minutes both were called to examining rooms and I was left wondering about this school. Where exactly was it? And why didn’t it have books?
