Last year Demitrius Sisneros showed kindness to his classmate Kent Teshima. After days of vigorous walking in DC, Kent's legs were really hurting. They wanted no part of a wheelchair so his buddy Demitrius carried him all over DC for the next two days, including up and down the stairs of the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials! Courtesy photo

This week’s uproar over the president’s reputed profanity (which he denies) in a private meeting simply highlights what seems to be an increasingly rapid downward spiral in societal propriety, courtesy and … well, just plain ol’ class.
