So many retirees go through the struggles your MC is having here. This story flowed nicely and the dialog was authentic. The ending lines wrapped this up perfectly. Do unto others. . .
Nice bottom line, however, I'm not sure Ernie got it. If some people could only look past the exterior and not look at what is, but what could be. Intentionally look for the good, and celebrate who our young people are in the process of becoming rather than focusing on what they aren't.
Ernie sure is a whiner. This pastor has so much patience.
Wow! What a great message in the 750 (or less) words! I hope he wakes up. He could help a lot. Good work on this!
As I was reading this, I was wondering how you were going to bring it to a satisfying conclusion. You did an excellent job, though. That final line captures the essence of the story as well as the feelings that many of us feel no matter our age.
Donna, this is superb use of irony! I wonder how long it will take for his hypocrisy to sink in.
