Ride with the Pope

I’m sure you have probably heard that Pope Francis, elected on March 13, regularly took public transit as archbishop in his home country of Argentina. But did you also know that he took a bus ride with other cardinals instead of the papal limousine when he left the Sistine Chapel hours after being elected head of the Catholic Church.

I hope that might inspire others but I also hope that we could get to a place in this country where taking public transit is simply what people do regardless of their economic status. We want to get away from the idea that it’s only for the poor.
