It really is a small world, and here’s a story that demonstrates. So here we go:
- Elementary school students in WI made goody bags to support service members.
- Red Cross volunteers handed them out at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda.
- (OK stick with me now…) 12 years later Air Force Lt. Jennifer Szatkowski goes to the dentist at Walter Reed.
- As she’s sitting in the exam room, she realizes the decorated paper bag hanging on the wall was the one she created years ago!
