Most parents would be concerned to receive a note from the school bus driver. But Annaliese and Jorge Narvaez-Salgado’s parents had no reason to be.
Cindy Clausen, a bus driver in Princeton, New Jersey, sent a note to the parents of the two young riders to tell them, “how beautiful your children are, inside and out!”
Why One Bus Driver Wrote a Letter About Two Students
Clausen, 60, who has been driving for the Princeton public schools for 23 years, wrote that Annaliese and Jorge showed compassion and support to a fellow rider, 7-year-old Jaxson Blue, who has a degenerative condition that makes it hard to walk.
Every day, your children ask if they can sit with Jaxson. Today, Annaliese looked out from around her seat and said, ‘Come on Jaxson, you can do it,’ and when we arrived at school, Jorge took it upon himself to carry out his backpack.Cindy Clausen wrote in the letter
“I know you know how wonderful your children are, but I wanted you to know that it shows,” she wrote.

Clausen writes that some days Jaxson is a little sad getting on the bus but as soon as he sees Annaliese and Jorge he smiles.
Jaxson’s mom, Belmax De Jesus, also smiled when she read about the children and their inspiring behavior.
How Two Children Proved the Importance of Compassion
“I look at them as angels because it’s like, how do they know how to be so compassionate and so kind? It’s so pure and genuine. I’m also very grateful for the parents because clearly they’re doing something right. For their kids to be so open and loving, that is definitely stemming from the home,” Belmax De Jesus told Chasing News.
