This week’s featured story comes from Lily in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She shares how she helped her community change the school bus stop to a safer location:
“This year, my sister was assigned a new bus stop, a patch of grass behind a curb. When it rained, her and other students sank into the grass and mud. To get there, one had to cross two streets, and parking was difficult. My mom asked the bus driver if the stop could be returned to the small park close by with sufficient parking. The bus driver stated, ‘Call the school and have it formally assigned.’ I spent my afternoon looking up the respective phone numbers of four schools, writing them down along with the bus number, former bus stop address, proposed new bus stop address, and the reasoning behind why this stop needed to change. The next morning, my mom took the paper to the bus stop and let the parents take photos of it. The parents called their child’s respective school, and within a week, the stop was changed to the convenient and safe park. I was relieved and proud at the success of our communal effort.”
