|Congratulations to J.H.|
Oh well, what’s a society to do with people like this? Myself, I posted everything I could find out about him online, including any dark alleys he might be found in, along with his senseless words, and in my mind that was that. Then I received a short letter in the mail.
|EJV, I owe you a beer.|
We used to take care of each other but never expected anything in return. Citizens hated bullies and solved the problem themselves without crying to the teacher or local police. When a person in our life was targeted, we circled the wagons instead of throwing the target to the wolves. And, when we saw someone putting forth an effort, we hoped with all our might for their success, not failure. Having received this letter, I now know of another person out there who still embodies those notions.
His words are simple and straightforward yet his depth of understanding is clear. Instead of sitting by and watching us swallow a load of crap, as a replacement he offered chocolate cake and words of encouragement.
Thank you Mr. EJV. You made my day.
