A New Jersey bus driver’s incredible note to the parents of two children who reached out to another student with a disability went viral.
The note, written by driver Cindy Clausen, was written after Clausen noticed the two students, Jorge and Annaliese, showing kindness to disabled boy named Jackson.
“I am compelled to write to tell you how beautiful your children are, inside and out! This can only come from the home, your patience and guidance, the examples that you set and teach,” Clausen’s note read. ““Every day your children ask if they can sit with Jackson. Some days Jackson is a little sad getting on the bus but as soon as he sees Annaliese and Jorge he smiles. Jackson has difficulties walking and it takes a bit for him to get to his seat.”
On that day in particular, Clausen said, Annalise encouraged Jackson to make it to his seat despite his difficulty doing so.
“When we arrived at school Jorge took it upon himself to carry out his backpack!” she wrote.
“I know you know how wonderful your children are, but I wanted you to know that it shows!”
