On the train I’m riding in, there was a boy, maybe 5 or 6 years old, riding with his mother. They got off the train, and as we’re in the front car, they stood near the driver’s window and said, “Arigato gozaimasu.” That means “thank you” in Japanese. I didn’t expect what happened next. The train driver very briefly used the train’s horn. The boy then mirrored the motions that the driver does, and he seemed very seriously into it.
Train driver, you just made a little boy very happy. Here’s a photo of the train. He’s in there somewhere.
I love seeing things like this. Have you seen anything recently that makes you think humanity isn’t all that bad?
