“Have a good day.” So says a man named Brother Lewis in the Forest Park South East area of St. Louis who is making a uniquely huge impact. I first encountered him on my way to work one day and soon noticed that he was there standing on the corner of Tower Grove and Vista everyday waving at people as they passed by. His persistence, and the sheer joyfulness he expressed on a daily basis as I drove by everyday intrigued me. Living in the city of St. Louis people know most people aren’t that friendly so it was a amazing to see someone not afraid to show love to anyone who passes by. In some strange way it seemed to brighten my outlook on my day as I traveled to work.
The Power of Have a Good Day and a Wave
So I decided to meet him one day, get to know him and tell his story in The Wave. I hope you enjoy and are inspired! Sometimes we don’t know the power of a friendly face, a smile, and a wave. Let’s explore it. The power of Brother Lewis’s optimism in simple kindness towards others is infectious. Since the premiere of the video Brother Lewis was blessed by a local dentist with free oral surgery. The dentist saw his bright outlook on life and decided to give him a even brighter smile to match.
