Believe me, when it can’t get worse, it gets better

February 20, 2007

“I’ll tell you about this schoolkid who came up the street this morning [Feb. 20]. I see him some days, but this time he’s carrying some musical instrument in a case and his face is kind of depressed.

“So I say to him: ‘What’s the problem?’ and he shows me the musical instrument case. I can tell he’s got a trombone in there and then he says to me, no joke: ‘My teacher won’t let me wear earplugs.’ So I say: ‘You can’t be that bad’ and he says ‘yup’ he certainly is.

“Anyway, I looked at him and I told him to just stick with it and that it will get better. Believe me, when it can’t get worse, it gets better.”

    Personally I figure for every advice an adult gives a child = 1/10th of an equal giving advice… however as a child I took advise from homeless people as 1/1 because they knew the dangers of making the wrong decision. No offense intended at all, I know now that isn’t necessarily the case for most of the homeless population.

    But I thank Tony for possibly inadvertently helping to push kids to push themselves harder than they otherwise would.

    Tony, regardless of your living situation, YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION TO HUMANITY.
