Appreciate what you have

To the Editor:

Regarding the picture in June 17’s newspaper with the title, “Where’s the candy?”

A daughter is watching her father compete in the Lake in the Hills Triathlon, and she is holding a sign that reads “Worst Parade Ever.”

Her mother said her daughter was hoping they would throw candy to the crowd during the triathlon. Obviously the mother knew that no candy would be thrown and prepared the sign for her daughter before the triathlon.

Is this what her father needs to look at as he competes in this race? Is society so selfish that we always want something for nothing?

Why can’t the daughter just enjoy watching her dad compete in this triathlon and cheer him on? As for the mother of the little girl, why can’t she stop making signs and appreciate the fact that she has a husband and her daughter has a father?

Appreciate what you have today for it may be gone tomorrow.
