Here's a heart warming story in light of the season.

This is an article about a good man. This is not about a rich man or a famous man or a man given to social airs.......

All Jack Anderson asked was that you paid him respect and pay attention. Jack like many coaches and educators realized early on that his influence would be far reaching. He was one of those teachers who understood,

Nor all the books on all the shelves,

It's what the teachers are themselves. (Wooden)
