This is a long-shot away from my usual environmental posts but as my general theme reveals around 'articles that renew my faith in humanity', I thought I would give it a share. This person had their 'lollipop' moment on a bike and I think most of us can relate to those extremely random times when we conceive, or better yet, open our eyes to, some of our best thoughts.
So the semi driver who rushes past throwing gravel in my face in his hot wake isn’t necessarily a bad guy. He could be sitting in his cab listening to Christian radio and thinking about nice things he can do for his wife. But the fact that “the system” allows him to do those things instead of being mindful of me is a privilege he has that I don’t. (I have to be hyper-aware of him).
