Ever have that uneasy feeling in school, when you walked into the lunchroom early in the school year and really didn’t know anyone and weren’t sure where to sit?  That’s kind of what happened to Lucy Taylor, a second grader at Barth Elementary School in Romulus, MI.  But one amazing person was going to change that!  Lucy has cerebral palsy and relies on a wheelchair or walker to get around. Not only that, she spent so much of her life in the hospital that she hasn’t had a chance to socialize with many kids her age.  So when Lucy’s mother, Dawn, learned she was spending her lunch and recesses alone, she went to Facebook to express her frustration. Barth’s principal, David Thompson, saw the post and made it his mission to turn things around for the little girl as soon as possible.  The next day at recess, David went right over to Lucy, sat down beside her and proceeded to charm her.  That got the attention of other students and soon, a whole group of kids were laughing with, and being friendly to Lucy, finally making her feel like she fit in.  It’s an amazing act of kindness and leadership.
