An Eight-Year-Old Earth Angel
We came across this story and all agreed that this eight-year-old boy is an earth angel if ever there was one.
I have to give lots of credit to Myles Eckert's mom too, raising him alone from the time he was only five weeks old, when his dad was killed while serving in Iraq.
After finding a $20 bill, he decided to give it to a man in uniform, with a note. "Dear Soldier," it said. "My dad was a soldier. He's in heaven now..."
The boy says they like to "pay it forward" in his family. The least we can do at Angels on Earth is to help pass it on.
Longfellow's "Footsteps of Angels" was written after the death of his first wife.
