Children of the Trains!

Good day to you all there and welcome to the weekend. It is the Thanksgiving Holiday this weekend here in Canada, and I wanted to go into the holiday recognizing some Full Spectrum Leadership initiative in action.

There are more than 10,000 street children in Thailand; for most of them the streets are often a safer place than their homes.

The Library Train began as one man's efforts to care for a few of Bangkok's street children. Now it is a collective volunteer effort by the Thai railway police to serve, protect, shelter, and educate the many homeless children living in the streets and slums of Bangkok.

I picked this video today not only to honor Father Joe, but to remind you that, if you are watching this piece on a computer, there is indeed much to be thankful for in your life. Take some time this weekend to create a Gratitude List for yourself. You'll know why!

Have a wonderful weekend.

See you next week.
