The Son



"Always be a little kinder than necessary."
-James M. Barrie

It would seem that Mater's recent hope for humanity is justified. She enthusiastically presented her newly acquired safe to my brother, seeking his expert opinion when he visited yesterday.
Without comment, without an inkling of his mother's recent jest about donations, he, smiling, reached into his pocket, extracted fifty cents, and deposited it in the safe.
The event failed, naturally, to make the evening news: but it made Mater's day.
