What Makes Ridgefield So Special # 10

This was posted on NextDoor recently – and I think it bears repeating.

“Teenagers today

Today my husband and I were walking in downtown Ridgefield. We came up on 2 teenage boys riding their skate boards toward us. As we approached the market on the corner the boy with I believe a orange (BRIGHT) cap on held the door open for his friend, but what was very nice was he waited for us to finish crossing the street and continued to wait for us as he held the door open. In my experience It seems that people are so busy these days they don’t take time to be courteous and I really appreciated this simple gesture. My husband and I were a bit surprised and extremely happy. We thanked the gentlemen and it reminded us this is what the world loves – a little bit of kindness.

If you are the parent of this child you should be proud. Thank you sir and keep it up.”
