On December 31, I was buzzing around completing all of my year-end tasks, one of which was donatingDonation box 2 some unneeded clothing and household items to Goodwill.

There was only one more cable car running for the night, and it would arrive soon. There were about eight of us waiting for what felt like an hour. We were all shivering. There was also a homeless man among us. He was heavily bearded, roughly dressed, and appeared to be as cold as the rest of us. I remember his smile and bright eyes. He was singing Christmas carols as he politely walked among us.

Jim Kirkpatrick recently facilitated the Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification Program Pop by– Bronze Level in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
