Something happened recently that deserves attention. My doorbell rang last month and when I answered, I was asked if I wanted to buy some cookie dough to support the Lakewood football team. Given my age, cookie dough is one of those things I have put in the museum. I made a cash donation and passed on the dough. The young man and his mother, who drove him, were both kind and friendly.
This week, the same young man rang my doorbell. His mother drove him here so he could personally deliver a hand written thank you note for my donation. After I shook his hand, I hollered for his mom to open her car window. When she did, I thanked her for what must have been a parent-inspired lesson in humanity and the ways of life. It was so refreshing. Reminds me of my youth and what I was taught. Now I wish I had given even more. I look forward to seeing these kids in the fall. I also look forward to my door bell ringing next year! Thank you, Taylor Tresch, and thank you mom. I hope this is a lesson that can spread.
