Bright Side

February 3, 2010

I hated news reporting class. I was power walking to the Communication building, heeled shoes clack clack clacking on the concrete. I unwrapped a peanut butter and jelly sandwich I had produced from my purse so I could eat while walking, saving time between work and the dreaded class. My mind spun with complaints.

Then I saw the kid in the wheelchair. I had seen him before, in the Honors College playing piano. He was wheeling by in the opposite direction, and he was singing “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” from the Monty Python skit.

Handicapped people are dependable, in that they consistently force you to check your outlook on life.
