                                A recent letter regarding volunteerism was spot-on but it also got my attention for another reason: My granddaughter recently received her Gold Award from the Girl Scouts. It was handed to her with no ceremony or fanfare. A leader made the comment, "Just once, I would like to hear someone say,...
