    What a great story!!

    And speaking of jumping to conclusions about others, I read the story before I checked out the Lady’s Profile. From what she posted, I was expecting her to be in her 60’s or 70’s, and thought it was cool, although a little unusual for someone that age to have a MySpace page. Then I read her Profile, and she’s about 9 or 10 years younger than I am!

    Also, on the topic of judging others by their appearence, I know that tattoos and piercings are somewhat controversial. I don’t currently have either, and likely won’t get either, but I won’t rule it out entirely.

    What I have mostly found with others, though, that do have more than just a simple ear piercing, or small tat, is that they are intelligent, nice people.

    Wow! Young ethnic people can be nice? What a concept.

    I’m glad she was able to “transform” them.

    Ironic since I think it was the kids that transformed HER, from a little ignorant/prejudiced to a bit less so.

    Wow, S, sorry you missed the whole point of the blog which was to explore the greatness available when we step away from judgement. Never once did I make a comment of surprise that an ethnic kid could be nice. We did transform them – from bored to animated, and they also transformed our day from our intent of relaxation to one of silliness and laughter. You seem to have passed over my comment that I understood most of what they said. Not just the three boys that were hanging out with us, all of them surrounding us. I didn’t publish all of those comments for your reference, but I doubt you would’ve been interested since you’d already judged me.

Sorry, comment time is over.
