Mensches worth mentioning
Mensch is a Yiddish word that means “a person of integrity and honor,” according to Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary.
I’ve been lucky to know quite a few mensches, including, but certainly not limited to, my son’s soccer coaches, Boy Scout leaders, Sunday School teachers, the pastors who guided him through confirmation, most of his public school teachers and many of our neighbors.
While these mensches may never have cried over my child, they’ve diligently supported and affirmed him. Yes, I’ve been lucky, and so has he.
