Thought for today.
After I retired from being a children's librarian in a public library, I happened to be getting books for my own reading and ran into a child, a 'slow' reader that I had helped for many years find books that he would could read and enjoy
He wondered where I had been. When I told him that I had retired he looked so sad and said, "nobody else treats me like I'm normal -- like you do."
Made me feel like I'd been successful with at least one person there.

What is normal?

Sad that he feels like other people don't treat him as normal. But good for you. A librarian should be finding the right books for each person, right? Not judging whether they are "normal". Sigh.
