We were stopped at a light. It was dark, very damp…the rain and the wind worked to insidiously chill to the bone….
….especially so, I imagine….for the 20 something easing the strain, by leaning against the lamp post, holding a message of appeal.
Without question, or hesitation…and without a word…..my 15 year old son handed me the last $12 out of his wallet, to give to the girl. It was birthday money he had been saving, and had just spent a little of, on something he wanted to buy for himself.
Generosity, and compassion….empathy, just because….in motion.
A Mentor in Motion…..my son.
