Matters’ 3rd Mentor in Motion.

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.
