Important Lesson

The following story is told by Anne Cutchings.

During my second month of nursing school, our professor gave us a
pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through
the questions, until I read the last one: "What is the first
name of the woman who cleans the school?" Surely, this was some
kind of joke.

I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall,
dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name? I
handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank.

Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question
would count toward our quiz grade. "Absolutely," said the
professor. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are
significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all
you do is smile and say 'hello'."

I've never forgotten that lesson.

I also learned her name was Dorothy.

Moral: When you learn about big things in the world, don't
forget to learn about the important little things as well.
