Aunt Norie’s Sewing Room
I met an outstanding young man the other day, one of the “Super Techs” in a large nearby store, who was so very helpful, so very courteous, so respectful. We had a serious problem, an ink cartridge stuck in my printer. Totally our fault, I might add.
“Lucas” couldn’t get it out either, but to just save my ink cartridge (even if you can break it out of there), he said, “If you want to leave it, I’ll be glad to try later.” We came back later to find that young man had used his break time to work on it, he had actually taken it apart, getting to its innards, and actually had it working.
Those of you who know me well, know how fiercely I can “go to bat” for our kids, our youth, many courageous keen sharp minds, who will have to carry on, who will become our great leaders. These upcoming youth will have inherited this great unfair mess our current leaders will have heaped on their shoulders.
Many in our world are quick to blame the kids, the teenagers, the youth. I say look around you, they are everywhere, these strong keen young minds, the strength, our future leaders, the very foundation of our nation.
Remembering now the media never feeds us all the good, but they can and do grab the sad, the bad, the horrible, and then shake it like a dog killing a snake.
Thanks again, Lucas. God bless our kids, our youth.
