There are few things as satisfying as watching good triumph over evil. When that goodness comes from a 15-year-old boy, you’ve just got to be impressed with his character.
The story starts with an elderly woman visiting her recently deceased husband’s gravesite. As she mourns, she is mugged by a man, who steals $700 from her. When the story makes it to the news, a boy immediately recognizes the mugshot of the perpetrator. It’s his dad. And not only that, but his dad had recently given him $250 to go to a band camp.
What the teen does next — and how the elderly woman responds — shows that sometimes, yes, good does triumph over evil in this crazy world.
