O.K., I have to admit that they are not all gone. After all, my young boys almost always open the car door for me and, if necessary, help me up into the van or truck.
On Sunday, we had some other young gentlemen in our home who were well-mannered, respectful, thoughtful --- and lots of fun.
Yesterday, I saw a teenage boy ask to sweep up a floor because he couldn't bring himself to stand by idly while his mother worked.
So there is hope.
