Response to Waiting For Everyman (Reply #10)

Thu Jun 2, 2016, 10:20 AM

17. You brought a happy tear to my eye!

My grandfather taught be that about character. He'd pronounce it, at times: ka-RACK-ter to help me remember.

He also taught me: "They can take away everything you own -- even the shirt off your back, but they can't take away what you know."

Thank you, Waiting For Everyman. Among other important things, you know right from wrong.
