To Our Readers

So much of what we learn from our parents comes through their example rather than their words. I remember two particular examples that taught me the value of integrity and responsibility.

One was a small lesson that came when I was about thirteen years old. My dad had just left a convenience store with my brother and me after buying the usual milk or bread. We were already at the car when he discovered that he'd been given twenty-five cents too much in the change the cashier returned to him. There wasn't a moment's hesitation. "You boys wait here a minute," he said. "I need to return this."
