The following letter was forwarded by someone who teaches at a small high
school in central Ontario. The letter was sent to the principal's office
after the school had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. This story is a
credit to all humankind. Read it, soak it in, and bask in the warm feeling
that it leaves you with.


Dear School,

God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent senior citizen's
luncheon. I'm 94 years old and live at the local Home for the Aged. My
family has long since passed away and I rarely have visitors. As a result, I
have very limited contact with the outside world. This makes your gift
especially welcome.

My roommate, Maggie Cook, has had her own radio for as long as I've known
her. She listens to it all the time, though usually with an earplug or with
the volume so low, I can't hear it. For some reason, she has never wanted to
share it.

Last Sunday morning, while listening to her morning gospel programs, she
accidentally knocked her radio off its shelf. It smashed into many pieces,
and caused her to cry. It was so sad.

Fortunately, I had my new radio. Knowing this, Maggie asked if she could
listen to mine. I told her to fu*k off.

God bless you.

Edna Johnson
