A Lesson to Remember
Every once in a while, your day is brightened unexpectedly. Today some students from Milwaukee's Golda Meir School took a tour of the station. It's a school for gifted and talented students of diverse backgrounds.
It was fun to see these young students excited about going behind the scenes. My co-anchor Mike Jacob's hosted the tour and I got the chance to talk with the young ladies about our jobs.
They were so adorable. Suddenly, it took me back to my days as a teacher, a job I truly miss. Seeing young people filled with promise of the future, and an eagerness to learn is a thing of beauty.
Often as we get older, we forget to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. We're too busy, too stressed, too tired.
I'm convinced all adults should try to see the world through the eyes of the young.
After meeting with these lovely young ladies and their dedicated teacher and chaperones, it hit me. The enthusiasm of youth is something to hold sacred. But does it have to go away as we get older? I honestly do not think so.
Some of the most amazing people I have met in my Positively Milwaukee interviews approach living with a childlike wonderment. That spirit that keeps them vibrant, young, and passionate.
Thank you students from Golda Meir. Today you reminded me of an important life lesson. You taught me.
