Dear Abby

At the Leaders Club (HS club for which I'm the advisor) meeting last nite, one of the teens began a values session by reading the following Dear Abby letter:

A young man from a famous family was about to graduate from high school. It was the custom in that affluent neighborhood for the parents to give the graduate an automobile. "Bill" and his father had spent months looking at cars, and the week before graduation, they found the perfect car.

On the eve of his graduation, his father handed him a gift-wrapped Bible.

Bill was so angry that he threw the Bible down and stormed out of the house.

He and his father never saw each other again.

It was the news of his father's death that brought Bill home again.

At this point, the teen asked each of us to write down what we thought the young man found upon returning home. Here's what I wrote:

The young man discovers his parents adopted a boy to be their new son. The adopted son is often seen cruising through town in the car the young man had picked out years before. There's a Jesus fish on the back of the car.

I'm supposed to be a role model for these teens, but I just couldn't resist on that one.
