Please don't don't think this doesn't happen in Pocomoke. I am proof that it does. One Christmas morning many years ago when my son was very young we were visited early that morning by one of his friends. The child was grinning from hear to ear holding nothing but a Christms pencil and a Match Box car. It was all he had asked for- except for a bicycle. Santa could not afford to leave him one. I don't know who was devastated more- myself or my children. They had received so much.
It didn't take long for my young son to get into the garage, clean his old bicycle up a little and ride it to the little boys house. We hadn't decided what to do with it so my son made the decission.
(Edward, we still think about you- wherever you may be........)
Children that are truly poor never ask for much.....
