Happy birthday

Sundays demand a story that reminds us that we’re not really like most of the news we watch, read, and hear. We’re better.

The Owatonna People’s Press (perhaps the best named newspaper in Minnesota) complies with the story of a 67 year old man in Owatonna whose mother died when he was 1, didn’t have a father in his life, lived on the streets for years and never had a birthday party in his life.

Until Thursday.

    Great story! He’s lived quite a remarkable life and has survived through a lot, so he deserves finally having a first birthday party!
