Old People are Great
This will warm your heart. Just when you have lost faith in human kindness.
Someone who teaches at a middle school in Safety Harbor, Florida,forwarded
the following letter.
The letter was sent to the principal's office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. An old lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door prize and was writing to say thank you.
This story is a credit to all humankind.
Forward to anyone you know who might need a lift today.
Dear Safety Harbor Middle School:
God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent Senior Citizens
I am 84 years old and live at the Safety Harbor Assisted Home for
the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone and I want to
thank you for your kindness to an old, forgotten lady.
My roommate is 95 and has always had her own radio; but before I received one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping.
The other day her radio fell off the nightstand and broke into a lot of pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I told her to kiss my ***.
Thank you for that opportunity.

The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

If that was here in K-town, I'd think it was one of my clients!
