Kids These Days…

This morning’s news was typically replete with mentions of kids bringing guns to school and how much middle school kids really know about sex and drugs.

Frightening stuff. It begs the question: what is to become of our nation with our youth acting this way? (Yes, I realize this makes me sound like an old fart!)  Then I was stopped in my tracks.

An amazing young man, Jaydin Goldenstein, has inspired me.

Jaydin lost his mother last week while he sat by her bedside. They had had a strained relationship when she was alive. She was a drug addict and had spent time in jail and at a halfway house. In an inspirational show of love and forgiveness, he dedicated his next two baseball games- a double-header- to his mom.

This amazing Colorado kid went on to pitch a no-hitter in the first game and hit 4 home runs in the second, batting in 7 runs and securing a win for the second game.

My faith is restored. Have an amazing day, everyone.
