The Radio                Getting Old(er)   /   Back Home

Thanks to Mary Lou for sending this one!

How you treat others can come right back to you. 
 Just when you have lost faith in human kindness, someone who
 teaches at Kean Elementary in Wooster, Ohio 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 Kean Elementary:  God bless you for the beautiful radio I
 won at your recent senior citizens luncheon. I am 84 years
 old and live at the Sprenger Home for the Aged. All of my
 family has passed away. I am all alone now and it's nice
 to know that someone is thinking of me.    God bless 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 ass.  Thank you for that opportunity.
