Thanks for making my day

To whomever came up with these placards of positivity idea, I say, bravo

Editor, The News:

On Monday morning, I was traveling west on Lougheed Highway and happened upon an intriguing sight.

Lined along the highway on both sides were scores of Thomas Haney secondary students holding up hand made signs.

As I slowed down to read some of the messages, my Monday morning blahs turned into smiles of joy.

I was told to “Honk if you love someone”, “This is your day!”, “You are wonderful.”

Well, honk I did, in fact I leaned on my horn for an entire block along the highway.

To whomever came up with this placards of positivity idea, I say, bravo.  In such a techno influenced culture, to see a group of youth holding up hand made, hand printed cardboard signs made my heart sing.

To the students who participated in this wonderful idea, I say, thank-you for being there on that Monday morning, you lifted my spirit and changed my day.
