Life's Surprises with Gary Smith: The choice to take the high road

Sooter Hooples stood near his apple shed at his Hooples Apple Farm.
He was in his 80s and still told stories with a gleam in his eye.
“God First. No Sunday Sales.” That is what his advertising sign said.
He taught Sunday School still, as he had most of his life.
He told us of when he was in the fourth grade and a bully picked on him regularly.
Sooter had a plan. He had a rock in his pocket. The next time the bully picked on him he would pull the rock out of his pocket and bash the surprised bully in the face.
