The wonderful Jan. 5 column by former Florida House leader Dan Gelber, Mentoring . . . 24 years later, told a story that was very emotional and rewarding for me.
His satisfactory mentoring of Travis, a 6-year-old boy, produced, 24 years later, the fruits of an accomplished individual who is now working on his dental degree.
I’m of the opinion that our society today is suffering from a serious lack of God and family life.
This is causing the terrible and monstrous scenes that we continue to see and experience in all communities across our nation.
In this story, former Rep. Gelber became the family that young Travis needed to become an important member of society.
