Last week, two young black boys passed down my street. I had seen them before, walking down the road bouncing a basketball, headed toward a friend's house. I called to them from my front yard and said, "Hello, boys!" The younger one looked up and called back, "How are you, sir?" I smiled and waved, pleased to hear the respect that any child – white or black – should have toward adults. Somebody’s father or mother was training that child right!
