Pride Tinged with Envy

I would never say that life-threatening illness is a good thing. But my former student seems to have used his recent experience in what I can only call a wonderful way.

Envy is so close to vanity, but when I say I never had a similar experience with my own parents .... Indeed, I recall the one or two times after I was an adult that I asked them to step up and they didn't ....

Thank you, George for writing about your own experience. They gave to you, and you give back. I believe that's what they call a virtuous cycle.
