We are still overwhelmed by the generosity of a young man who forfeited his ticket to see “The Pirates of Penzance” so that my granddaughter and I could see it.
We got to the Morrison Center an hour early to buy tickets at the door. We arrived at 6:30 when they said the door would open (they opened 10 minutes early). The young man in front of us bought the second-to-last ticket. He could see how very disappointed we were. As we started to leave he turned around and handed MaKayla his ticket and told me to quickly go buy mine. We were so totally overwhelmed that I gave him a big hug, thanked him and rushed off without paying him. MaKayla was elated but sad that he gave up his ticket.
The production was delightful and MaKayla wanted to know when we could go again. I decided this was a good time to teach her about paying it forward. We will do that sometime in the near future.
Thank you to the young man for making a 9-year-old very happy.
