|For those passing out
candy this year: when a teenager comes to your door please give them
candy without saying, "Aren't you too old to be doing this?"
They could be out doing
things much worse. I would rather have them knocking on my door than
having them do dangerous things. Let them be kids as long as they can
be. They are growing up way too fast.
Thank you so very much, Joan! I quite agree!
