On my way home from work the other day I had a lovely change of pace. A couple young lasses were walking on the right side of the street towards us. One of them was sharing a peace sign (through a hand gesture) with cars as they passed them ahead of us.
When it was our turn, she was looking directly at us and for all the right reasons I shared a peace sign in return.
I thought it was a lovely gesture. I imagine their ages might be around fifteen or sixteen (perhaps younger, I am terrible at guessing ages). At that age I think kids are more into that rebellious frame a mind and you are often more likely to get the finger or a shout if they notice you at all.
Thanks for the smile girls. Peace and joy to you and yours.
