You reap what you sow

I went to the Advisory Council on Special Education meeting in San Diego yesterday the 18th to join with others in documenting the prejudice of the Office of Administrative Hearings against parents and their children. I think we got the job done, and maybe it will bear good fruit.

But the thing that really got my attention was a side comment by Yvonne Chan, a member of the State Board of Education. The transmission went on her fancy car, and she was looking at $10,000.

Back in 1968, she taught Special Ed. She happened to run into one of her former students at the dealer. So instead of having to argue about who would spring for the transmission, she got out of there with a new car. I was moved to remark that it was a good thing she treated the kid right 35 years ago in class! It took a while, but Yvonne Chan reaped what she sowed, and it's a good thing for her that she sowed some good seed back in the day.

You appear to be casting stones. Not sure whether you are comparing or judging; lest you be judged!
I agree with your title, youare reaping what you sow.

I cant see why anonymous is finding fault with your reporting Ms. Chans good treatment at the dealership...Maybe you should have provided more detail for the reader to get a picture of how Grace for Ms Chan arrived via the lack of haggeling over a transmission...you might give more detail. "draw a picture"

I know time seems to be passing more slowly now, but (just to nitpick) 1968 was 42 years ago, not 35. I think we become less cognizant of these things as the years pass; does 1990 seem like 20 years ago?
