Forget-me-not

Today I saw a something that caused me to pause. A boy, 14, maybe 15 years old. He was getting something out of the passenger side of the car he and his mother were in. He then went back to the front of the grocery store where a veteran was collecting money and put money in the jar. He then looked into the eyes of the veteran, thanked him for his service and shook his hand.

On my way out I put my money into the jar. I then looked into the eyes of the veteran, and thanked him for his service as I shook his hand.

A wonderful sight to see; a 15-year-old young man with such respect . A 15 year old young man serving as a role model. Two very different generations separated by time, but not so separated by the values of respect and honor.
