I was picking up Aaron, my elder son, from his kindergarten couple of years back. On my way, I saw him saying hi to the cleaner at school. The conservative mother in me questioned him as to how he knows people other than his teachers, and why he is saying hi to a cleaner. To which he answered with a usual innocent ‘my teacher said’, that “cleaners are great people. They keep Australia clean”. How beautiful is that concept! Whilst I was so proud of my boy, I truly appreciated his teacher who introduced such a poignant message in the minds of children at a young age!
Of course, “Not everyone can pick up the mess that others make”. They are indeed special.
