My Dear Brethren, an anecdote for you...

 

One spring day near the end of his freshman year,  Mark was leaving school.  Just as he left the school grounds, he saw another student he vaguely recognized kneeling, trying to pick everything that had fallen from his worn-out backpack.  On an impulse, he crossed the street and asked  "Can I help you?  Your backpack is shot."  The other student nodded and the two boys walked away carrying an an armful of books, school supplies, a baseball glove, two hoodies, and other things.

 

Mark asked the boy his name.  "I'm David.  Thanks for helping me with my stuff."  They walked through the quiet suburban afternoon, striking up a conversation in which they discovered a common interest in the

same video games.  Around the corner, Mark hesitated.   "That's my

house right there.  Wanna come in, have a Coke, and play a game or

something?".    David assented, and the boys passed the rest of the

afternoon watching TV, playing video games, and making plans for the

coming weekend.   Later, Mark's mother drove David home.

 

They remained best friends throughout high school.  At the end of their senior year, as they drove to pick up their girlfriends to all go the graduation ceremony together, David was unusually quiet.

Finally he said, "Do you remember that day when we met?  When you

helped me pick up all my stuff?   Mark said he did, and David

continued.  "Well, that day I had made up my mind to kill myself with a bunch of pills I stole from my mom because I didn't have a single friend.  I didn't want to leave a mess, so I cleaned out my locker and was taking everything home when my stupid backpack gave out.  Then I met you, and and I had such a good day that I wanted to have more days like that.  See, when you picked up those books, you saved my life."

 

My Brothers, have you ever thought that a simple gesture of brotherly affection on your part could have such a lasting impact on someone else's life?

 

 

 

Sincerely & Fraternally,

Lee Miller
