Letter: Take a look around; you’ll find lots of good

To the editor:

This is what community is about.

In such a troubling time I would like to tell our community there is so much good and so many good people in our community, that we can be proud.

I was at lunch the other day with a couple of local gentlemen at Aunt Judy’s. It was my first trip, but I will certainly go back for many reasons.

The elderly gentleman most people know who walks all over Franklin and tries to be nice to everyone he meets was eating lunch where we were, and both of the gentlemen I was with at different times requested to pay for his lunch.

It is so rewarding to know I have the privilege to know people such as those with whom I was at lunch, who were anxious to help ensure someone a little less fortunate would get a good meal.

Now this is what I really appreciated: this elderly disadvantaged gentleman that we all know “always gets his lunch free” is what we were told when the gentlemen I was with offered to pay for his lunch.

Businesses aren’t all bad. There is so much good in our local communities if you look for it.
