A DIFFERENT KING OF SPRING BREAK

About this time next week, our 21 year old granddaughter Meredith will be leaving for India.

She will spend her spring break at Mother Teresa’s Home for the Destitute and Dying.

When her Dad heard of Meredith’s plans, he joked, “I’ll bet she’s just saying she’s going to India. She’ll probably be sunning on the beach in Florida.”

When I was in college, that’s exactly what I would have wanted to do—spend time at the beach, getting a tan!

But an admirable generosity is alive in today’s young people which gives hope to this fractured, troubled world.

It was just before Christmas that Meredith announced her plans to work in Calcutta. She said she didn’t want any Christmas presents—only donations to pay for her airfare.

Meredith will be going to Calcutta with a group of students from Regis University in Denver, where she is a senior nursing student. Not all going on this venture are nursing students. Perhaps all that is needed is a caring heart and willingness to serve.

God bless, Meredith.

    P.S. Do you think we'll ever get another column published in the paper?
