The behavior I was looking for in my AC4P Project was simple manners, such as saying "Please and Thank you," "You are welcome," etc. One day on my way to a class, I was running a little late. I was late because my classes were ten minutes apart, and the buildings were each on a different side of campus. As I was struggling to run/speed walk/not spill my coffee, a kind young lady saw me from a distance. She kindly waiting awhile to hold a door for me because she noticed my struggle and that I had my hands full. I thanked her for holding the door for so long, and she replied, "You are very welcome. I'm glad I saw you!" I immediately thought of the AC4P Part II, and luckily my bracelet was handy and ready to go. I told her about the project and offered her the bracelet. She thanked me again, and said she would pass it on if she saw the same behavior. She seemed really interested in the project, as I am. This project definitely brought back hope for me to see and pass along good behaviors that seem to be fading from today's society. Just a simple "Thank you," or "You are welcome" can mean all of the difference and make a bigger impact than we believe.
