This February we will have known each other for 10 years. I met her right after I started driving taxi. She was in her senior year of high school. It was one of those instant friendships that so rarely occur in a person's life. Last night she and her parents flew in from the Twin Cities for the specific purpose of visiting me. They are going to spend the rest of this weekend having fun in San Francisco.
Think about how special this loving act meant to me. The odds are that I will probably never see them again. The odds are against me being here next Christmas. Who could ask for a more loving gift that what these wonderful people have given me.
Those who fail to learn history correctly--
Why they are simply doomed.
