From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 10/30/17, 7:39 AM:

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.
Also, please don't refuse a child candy because they aren't dressed up. Some children are autistic or have sensory issues that make dressing up highly uncomfortable, if not unbearable. And some might not be able to afford them...

One last thing, size doesn't always determine mental age or special needs.

Be kind! ... Don't judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes..... children included!!!!


   Thank you so very much, Joan! I quite agree!

  From Jane Chambers of VA - 10/29/18:

    Thanks, Jane!

 From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 10/28/18:

    Thanks, Domi!
