Greatest forward ever? Greatest Forward Ever!

This will warm your heart, especially if you have lost faith in human kindness. This letter was sent to the principals' office after an elementary school had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. An old lady had received a new radio at the lunch as a door prize, and was writing to say thank you. This story is a credit to all human kind. Forward to anyone you know who might need a lift today! __________________________________ Dear Faculty and Students, God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent senior citizens' luncheon. I am 84 years old and live at an Assisted Home for the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone now and it's nice to know someone is thinking of me. God bless you for your kindness to an old forgotten lady. My roommate is 95 and always had her own radio. Before I received this one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping. The other day, her radio fell off the night stand and broke into a lot of little pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I said fuck you. Thank you for that opportunity. Sincerely, Agnes

Since you are still looking for a distraction, SM, here is another one:

I liked it - and I am a cat lover!

Cheers!

In case some cat lover goes all berserk, the bonsai kitten site is a hoax.

However fabricated the story may be, we can still take moral instruction from the story. :)

She's one of us. One of me anyway

I have to disagree. "Agnes" is a good example of why we are still fighting over Ishmael and Isaac...

She should have turned the other cheek. Eventually, the old feuds have to end...
