For the past couple of years, I’ve been using my Thursday lunch hours to participate in the Read to a Child program. It’s for the elementary schools in the city I work in.
I have the privilege of reading to DM (not his real name). DM is a second-grader in the poorest area of the city.
It humbles me – in a big way – when I walk into that school. Most of those kids are so sweet. And yes, there are some naughty ones too.
