I was about to walk into McDonald’s, when I noticed an old couple in front of me holding hands and walking towards the door. I sped up so that I could walk past them and get to the door first. The old woman’s face lit up with genuine surprise and appreciation when she realized that I had gotten in front of them so that I hold the door open. With the biggest smile on her face, the woman looked me in the eyes and said, “I haven’t seen that in years! It’s so wonderful to see nice young people with manners and respect. Thank you so much!”
Fellow young people:
Let’s change older people’s ideas about our generation.
