Truck Driver Delivers 3rd Baby Roadside (1-Minute Inspirational Video)

As a hyper-idealistic high-school student, I once asked a social activist I admired what profession I should choose in order to most help the world. I was expecting a grand answer like “Study medicine and treat children in a 3rd world country” or “Go into politics” or “Become a teacher in the inner city.” But her answer surprised me. She told me, “Just live your life, and you will find that in the situations that you come across, you can choose to do the right thing. That is the most important thing you can do to make the world a better place.” At the time, I thought that was the lamest answer I’d ever heard. But 24 years later, I think her answer was totally brilliant. And that’s the reason I adored this video about truck driver Michael Hawthorne who has made this belief his guiding philosophy as he drives America’s highways, delivering babies and saving lives.
