Hi, this is Aaron’s mom. I am not with Aaron today, but I received a call from my husband, Sam, who IS with Aaron today. He told me that somebody stole Aaron’s new sneakers. Aaron was a little bummed out, but not as much as I was! At first, I was extremely upset that someone was heartless enough to do this. Then, I started to think about all of the very generous things so many of you have done for Aaron and/or his family, and that helped me get over the anger. Aaron, apparently whomever stole your sneakers, needed them more than you do, so we’ll just consider it a donation, OK?
I got you another pair of sneakers today and we are going to do something to them (not sure what yet) that identifies them as yours, so nobody else would want them!
Just want you to know, Aaron, there are people out there who will take advantage of others and their situations, but for the most part, people are good and kind and so many of those people are behind you and are praying for you! Those prayers will protect you from the bad apples you meet along the way! Can’t wait to see you tomorrow! I love you !
