Bus drivers see dozens of children on a daily basis and at times, they tend to just let things blend into the background. That isn’t the case with all bus drivers, however, and this man showed some human kindness that certainly went above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks to his act of kindness, it has now expanded and many other children are being helped in the area as well.
John Lunceford is a veteran but for the past three years, he has been driving a school bus for a local school district. He was not blind to the situation that was taking place and fortunately, he had the thought to stand up and do something about it. You can read more about his story below.
When he noticed a young boy crying as he got on the bus, he also saw that his hands and ears were exposed to the cold temperatures. They had turned bright red after the young lad had been standing in freezing temperatures waiting for the bus.
John didn’t hesitate. He took his own gloves and gave them to the boy.
“I put my gloves on him and told him it’ll be OK, it’ll be OK,” he said.
When John dropped the kids off at school, he then went to the dollar store and purchased 10 stocking heads 10 pair of gloves. He took them to the school library and told all of the students that were on his route who didn’t have hats or gloves that he would take care of them.
“I’m a grandfather, you know,” he said. “No one wants a kid to suffer like that.”
Children are already taking him up on his offer.
“There was a little girl who said ‘I don’t have a hat,’” John recalled, “and I said, ‘I’ll take care of you, sweetie.’”
