I had a pleasant surprise, not too long ago, when I was looking for the staircase near the elevator. As I am searching for the stairs, with a crowd forming at the elevator, my concern grows for why the stairs never seem to be plainly labeled for an emergency situation. I finally asked, and one of the people waiting for the elevator points me in the right direction. Whew, now I feel better. Guess what happened? One of the people waiting for the elevator followed me to the staircase. Wow, that was great. I did not stick around to see if any more followed us. The two of us had a nice conversation, some good NEAT exercise, and even beat the elevator crowd, without trying. My spirits were lifted as I realized that we all have the capacity to set a good example. So, the next time someone asks if you are going up, or down, (for those of us who are able) why not answer with my favorite response: "Where is the staircase?" Here's to going up in the world.
