    Default OT: There are still polite, courteous kids being raised in America

    I wanted to share a story that happened this weekend at out baseball

    game. My boys are 8 & 10 and play in a local league that has teams of

    8-10 year olds on it. One of the teams (not ours) has a boy that has

    Down's Syndrome. We played against this team on Saturday afternoon.

    This boy, whose name is Paul, got up to bat. This first time, he

    struck out, but everyone, including our crowd, cheered for him. The

    second time he batted, he hit a ground ball right to our first baseman

    (Austin, who is 9 and my neighbor's son). Now instead of tagging Paul

    out, or touching the base, Austin just threw the ball back to the

    pitcher and let Paul have the base. The act of kindness nearly

    brought the entire crowd to tears.



    In this world that seems to be going in the wrong direction, I just

    wanted to let everyone know that there are still good parents out

    there, teaching their kids morals and kindness, and that the kids are

    listening and showing that the do care about others.
