Recently I met a guy named Leonard Gilbert on a trip.Leonard is the kind of people you could pass on the street and never
41but he is,in my view,a very special person who 42recognition.
Leo lives in a
43rural area,so when his wife had cancer several years ago,Leo was faced with a four-and-a-half-hour drive to where she could be treated.That 44lots of expense for meals,fuel,hotels and so on.But in the end the cancer took his wife 45.
Evidently Leo was very
46by his wife's passing,but he was also very angry,for he realized other people were facing the same sorts of 47.Rather than giving money to charities,what he did was start to throw 48.
Every other Saturday evening,there is a party in Leo's garage. Neighbors,friends and relatives come and bring snacks and drinks;many bring
49,there is music and dancing,and at some point during the evening Leo 50a family he has found who are having difficulties 51the cost of supporting a cancer patient undergoing 52far from home.Then a honey-jar is passed around and the money 53,every cent of it,goes 54to that family.The people at the party have a good time.The family 55that someone,probably someone they have never met knows what they are going through and 56enough to help.
57to help the families of other cancer patients was born out of his grief but,from the perspective of those who have received the money,it is an act of love.His personal 58has resulted in an act of kindness that honors the 59of the wife he has lost. Wouldn't it be nice if we had more people in the world like Leonard Gilbert? I'm glad I met Leo.He makes the world a 60place.
