I was sitting in my Meteorology Lab today looking over my lab before class started. This guy, an older non-traditional student in the class, said he had an announcement. He asked if anybody was staying in Lawrence for Thanksgiving and had nowhere to go. For a split second this didn't register with the rest of the class, but then we all realized he was making an invitation. A man, who only knows us because we all meet together twice a week for Meteorology Lab, was asking us into his home in case we had no where to go. Everyone was touched very deeply by this simple sentiment. All we could think was "That's so awesome." Very few people want to spend their Thanksgiving alone eating a Banquet frozen turkey dinner. It sounds cheesy, but it warmed my heart to think that there is some goodness left in this world.
