"He's right," Mark says.
I am busy typing an email and have to stop to figure out what he is talking about. A song is playing and it takes me a second to place it. "What?" I ask.
As Mark is falling asleep, we are listening to his favorite Pandora channel, based on the Newsboys. The song is "Give me your eyes" by Brandon Heath. (I am putting a link at the bottom so you can listen to the song if you have never heard it.)
"He's right," he repeats. "When we see people on the street or at the store, we treat them like NPC's."
(NPC = Non-Player Character, like the random background people in a video game that are of little importance and generally ignored)
"You're right. What could we do about that?"
"Wave at them. Smile."
So that is Mark's challenge to each of you tonight. I told him I was putting this on the blog and he smiled. He wants you all to go out tomorrow and work hard to not treat others like NPCs. Smile. Wave. Make people wonder what you're up to. Do it for Mark, because you never know what that person is going through. God bless you all! Good night.
