Classic "Do unto others …" An timely reminder and well done. Only two weeks in town, before they asked you to be on city council — wow!

First, I smiled as I read the details concerning the appointment to city council. It reminded me of an old Newhart episode from TV many years ago! I never realized that this actually happened in real life! (If your story is true, that is.)
Second, I melted like butter at the description of Don, and the way the MC responded to his illness. My Dad has Alzheimer's and he wants to be included still in life. I appreciate people like the MC who can see the way people used to be, and the value their lives still hold.

Very good, encouraging piece. Should help us all to have second thoughts about how we handle delicate situations.
