a credit to all humankind
This letter was sent to the Lions Bay School Principal's office after
the school had sponsored a luncheon for seniors. An elderly lady
received a new radio at the lunch as a door prize and was writing to
say thank you.
This story is a credit to all humankind. Forward to anyone you know

The other day her radio fell off the nightstand and broke into a lot

Thank you for that opportunity.
