Last Saturday at 9:00 AM, I was a guest on Elliot Simon's "Common Sense" radio broadcast from Shepherd University, and also had accepted his invitation to join him earlier that morning for breakfast at "Betty's" restaurant.
And so it was that morning, while walking through the West Virginia village of Shepherdstown, that an elderly couple crossed my path.
They were holding hands while they were taking their morning stroll, which prompted me to compliment them on their mutual affection.
With a twinkle in his eye, the old gentleman smiled, then gently pointed out to me that they held hands to keep each other from stumbling.
What a wondrous example they were and are, a life lesson for all of us to "Put Your Shoulder to the Wheel" and simply "Do What is Right" in all of our activities and relationships.
