The other day I received an unexpected email from a teacher with a request from a student. At first I was thinking the email might be some sort of spam. It was even flagged by my email system as "Caution: Suspect Sender."
Taking cybersecurity percauctions and not clicking any links within the email, I began to read. The teacher, indicated that she is working with a "very special group of kids" on a project regarding safety. She stated that she had "...asked the class to come up with all the things that they could think of where safety would be important."
One of her students, Anna, did some research and suggested that I should include an article she found online as she thought it could be useful to people looking at DriveSafeMissoula.com.
I hand typed the URL to the article in a seperate Virtual Private Network (VPN) browser to be safe and you know what?
The teacher went on in her email and said, "I want to show the...students that they can accomplish things if they aren't afraid to come out of their shells and simply ask, especially while being in so much isolation these days!"
Thank you for your service and for caring enough to share your tremendous research with Drive Safe Missoula and the entire Missoula community.
If I may, share this quote from one of my personal heros, Oprah Winfrey. She said, “I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.” Anna, I do believe you have lived up to those wise words.
