Well-Meaning

Gentleman Teen

It has been a while, you know – holidays and all – but it’s time to get back to business as it were. And this week brings a great story for all of us to learn from. Forget all those shady characters in sports – the Vicks, the Favres, the Tigers – and let’s all take an example from this young man.

High School student Rudy Favard answered the call from a family to come to their house three to four nights a week to carry their son with cerebral palsy up the stairs to his bedroom. The father used to carry him but could not any longer. Now this teen comes to visit a family many nights a week at 8pm to do this task for them. Just think what other teens could be and are doing at that time.
