In my last post, I told the sweet and unusual story of two high-school girls who decided to surprise me by rearranging my purchases in the grocery store checkout line. What happened next, the reasons for it and the delight it produced are detailed in The Lingering Joys of Camp Retro.
As so often happens in the blogging world, I’d barely posted their story when I was introduced by Richard of One More Good Adventure to another young woman, a professional who clearly had navigated the rough waters of high school and college and found success. Watching her carry out her own sweet and unusual mission, I couldn’t help but think of my two young friends. “Even when they’re all grown up,” I thought, “they’ll still be doing such things. They’re going to be just like her.”
And if they are, the world will be a far better place. They will understand the power of words, and the importance of compassionate deeds. What more could we ask of any generation?
