There Are Good Bosses And Then There Are Good Human Beings

Act #328:  Be a good human being.

This week I met a talented local photographer who wanted to volunteer her services to my non-profit.  Fifteen years ago, while seven months pregnant, her husband "punished" her for something and made her walk to work.  Her boss didn't say much when she arrived late that morning. But he simply gave her a paid day off and a slip of paper with the name and telephone number of  a local domestic violence shelter scribbled on it.  The photographer left her husband, and a ten year physically and emotionally abusive relationship, that day.  Fifteen years ago, someone cared enough not to judge her, and to make conditions easier for her to seek help.  Fifteen years later, she wants to do the same for others.
