Words of Wisdom...
Good morning, name of school. This is Mr. Kappes with a few words of wisdom.
During the holidays, most of us expect to receive lots of gifts from friends and family. We will spend our hard-earned money . . . or allowances .. . buying gifts for others. But many of us, because of financial difficulties, aren't expecting any gifts and have no money to shop for others.
So during this special time of year, it's important for those of us who have to share with those who have not. Let's remember the words of Saint Francis of Assisi (us See see):
Blessed is the man who helps his neighbor in trouble, just as he would wish to be helped in like circumstances.
Sounds like that Golden Rule again, doesn't it? You may say, "But I'm just a kid. I don't have any money to give." Well, you have something to give —a pair of jeans you've outgrown or a game you've grown tired of. These things can be donated to organizations which help the needy.
During this holiday season, let's all remember: It is more blessed to give than to receive. With something to think about, this is Mr. Kappes. Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
