Do the right thing
November 10, 2009
If you recently discovered a skateboard among your child’s possessions – a skateboard you didn’t buy and haven’t seen before – please know that there is a 7-year-old boy in Snowmass Village who had his most-prized possession disappear from a friend’s front porch on Halloween night at the North 40.
It has Rock’em-Sock’em robot graphics on the underside and silver designs (made by the board’s owner) on the grip tape. Returning the board to our grateful family could present an opportunity for you to teach your child (no questions asked from us) about how much better it feels to do the right thing. And it would enable us to give our son a happier ending to the difficult lesson we have had to teach him about how – even in our safe little town – people sometimes take things that don’t belong to them.
