|RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: PART II
Enough of war and inhumanity. I must speak of chivilry.
The morning paper brought a wonderful story about a group of students from
St. Xavier High School in Louisville, Ky. who act as family members and
serve as pall bearers for indigent folks who have no family and are going to
be buried in a paupers grave. The students carry the coffin and watch as it
is placed in the ground. On one occasion it was pouring down rain and they
refused to sit in the car. Instead they fulfilled their unsworn duty and
stood by the grave until the human being was lowered into his final resting
place. Until the article made the paper, few knew of their heroic acts. I
certainly didn‚t. Now that I know, I am impressed with the humanity of group
and their unselfish devotion to those less fortunate. One of the young men
said we‚re held at birth and we should be held at death. What a great mind
set. Life is good, and events like this reaffirm there is hope for us all.
