You are on a bus full of people. It's traveling fast along a road. It's fun on the bus. Everyone is laughing and dancing and having a good time.
While dancing, you look out the window. You see a yellow sign whiz by. It says, "Caution: Road Closed Ahead. Danger!"
You turn to others on the bus. You say, "Did you see that sign? It said, 'Road closed ahead!'"
The others on the bus just shrug, laugh and keep dancing. "We didn't see a sign!"
You forget about it, and continue dancing. But as the bus rolls along you notice another street sign: "Caution. Road ends ahead. Steep drop. Extreme danger. Turn around immediately."
You turn to your seatmate and point, "There, did you see THAT sign? It said that the road is going to end. Didn't you see the sign?" Your seatmate says, "I didn't see the sign. Are you sure? You must be imagining things."
Next, you see a huge red billboard on the side of the road. "Road ends in 50 meters. Last exit before road drops off! Danger!"
Still, the others on the bus are oblivious to the signs. And the people on the bus start to think that you are the crazy one, imagining signs that they cannot see.
Asking the bus driver to stop the bus to let you off is hard. And watching the bus pull away while you're standing alone on the side of the road is a dark, lonely moment.
But once you start walking something beautiful will happen. You'll see a figure up ahead - another person walking ahead of you.
You pick up the pace to catch up. Finally, out of breath, you're close enough to talk. You ask, "Where are you going?"
They answer, "Well, I was traveling on a bus, but I kept seeing these signs..."
Are you still on the bus? Have you seen the signs? I will walk with you.
