Familiar community faces

This was one of those days when things just seemed to work out simply and beautifully. It was one of the first times that I managed to find my way around the city without getting lost, despite a broken GPS and very little time from one assignment to the next. But the nature of the subjects I had that day were so positive, that I had to ride along and smile with them. Here are two happy faces from that day:

 Adult Education Centre teacher, Joe Davis surprised his students by getting his own high school diploma, 38 years after dropping out, in their graduation ceremony on Friday, June 24, 2011. 

This made me so happy to see on City Front.
