Looking For Clues
The usual groups of kids were on the lawns, sidewalks and streets of my Johnson County neighborhood Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning. I spotted tots on tricycles, towel-clad youths walking or riding bikes to and from the pool, and privileged teens cruising for the opposite sex as hired men maintained the lawns of their homes. But a new set of young people had joined their ranks. High school kids- most of them seemed to be the band camp type- were knocking on doors, posting flyers and chatting up everyone they encountered. Their efforts were in vain, yet I was touched by the intentions of these good Samaritans.
