A few good thoughts
Last week a 12 year-old showed more courage and used more common sense than many of us who are more experienced in life would have.
The 12 year-old was home alone Monday afternoon; he heard a knock on the door and didn’t recognize a group of teens who appeared there, teens who then apparently went around the house searching for possible entry spots to the home. He heard a back window break and then he quickly called 911.
Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene in the nick of time and all was saved.
Our 12 year-old young man was truly, in every sense of the word, a hero.
It’s promising to see this type of quick thinking by one of our local young people.
Anything we can do as citizens to support our valiant troops should be a priority.
This Saturday, from 4 until 9 p. m., there will be a special benefit on the Covington Square featuring our lovable friends from Hazzard County, the Dukes of Hazzard.
This free event is sponsored by Operation Sandbox, a group dedicated to collecting special needs supplies for our troops.
Donations of toiletries, drink mixes, entertainment items and batteries are welcome.
