On the noble pursuit of mentoring
To the Editor:
I was most pleased to see that the Big Brothers Big Sisters program has an active presence in my neighborhood. (Editor’s note: See “Is mentoring the answer to Southeast youth crime”)
I was a Big Brother until my work and family responsibilities made the task impossible.
Many years after I left the program, my former “little brother” recognized me. It was nice for me to see that he was a fine young man working as a carpenter.
The hug I got from the carpenter led me to believe that the time I spent with him was pleasing to a carpenter I have long worshipped.
