Default Thanks for your time!

A young man learns what's most important in life from the guy next
door it had been some time since Jack had seen the old man. College,
girls, career, and life itself got in the way. In fact, Jack moved
clear across the country in pursuit of his dreams. There, in the rush
of his busy life, Jack had little time to think about the past and
often no time to spend with his wife and son.

He was working on his future, and nothing could stop him. Over the phone, his mother told
him, "Mr. Belser died last night. The funeral is Wednesday." Memories
flashed through his mind like an old newsreel as he sat quietly
remembering his childhood days. Jack, did you hear me?" "Oh, sorry,
Mom. “Yes, I heard you. It's been so long since I thought of him. I’m
sorry, but I honestly thought he died years ago," Jack said. "Well,
he didn't forget you. Every time I saw him he'd ask how you
were doing. He'd reminisce about the many days you spent over 'his
side of the fence! ‘As he put it," Mom told him. "I loved that old
house he lived in," Jack said.” You know, Jack, after your father
died, Mr Belser stepped in to make sure you had a man's influence in
your life," she said "He's the one who taught me carpentry," he said.
"I wouldn't be in this business if it weren't for him. He spent a lot
of time teaching me things he thought were important...Mom, I'll be
there for the funeral," Jack said.

As busy as he was, he kept his word. Jack caught the next flight to his hometown. Mr. Belier’s
funeral was small and uneventful. He had no children of his own, and
most of his relatives had passed away. The night before he had to
return home, Jack and his Mom stopped by to seethe old house next
door one more time. Standing in the doorway, Jack paused for a
moment. It was like crossing over into another dimension, a leap
through space and time the house was exactly as he remembered. Every step held memories. Every picture, every piece of furniture....Jack
stopped suddenly. "What's wrong, Jack?" his Mom asked. "The box is
gone," he said "What box?" Mom asked. "There was a small gold box
that he kept locked on top of his desk. I must have asked him a
thousand times what was inside. All he'd ever tell me was’ the thing I
value most,'" Jack said. It was gone. Everything about the house was
exactly how Jack remembered it, except for the box. He figured someone from the Belser family had taken it. "Now I'll never know what was so
valuable to him," Jack said. "I better get some sleep. I have an early
flight home, Mom."

It had been about two weeks since Mr. Belser died.
Returning home from work one day Jack discovered a note in his
mailbox. "Signature required on package. No one at home. Please stop
by the main post office within the next three days," the note read.
Early the next day Jack retrieved the package. The small box was old
and looked like it had been mailed a hundred years ago. The
handwriting was difficult to read, but the return address caught his
attention. "Mr. HaroldBelser" it read. Jack took the box out to his
car and ripped open the package. There inside was the gold box andan
envelope. Jack's hands shook as he read the note inside. 'Upon my
death, please forward this box and its contents to Jack Bennett. It’s
the thing I valued most in my life." A small key was taped to
the letter. His heart racing, as tears filling his eyes, Jack
carefully unlocked the box. There inside he found a beautiful gold
pocket watch. Running his fingers slowly over the finely etched
casing, he unlatched the cover. Inside he found these words engraved:
"Jack Thanks for your time! -Harold Belser." "The thing he valued
most...was...my time “Jack held the watch for a few minutes, then
called his office and cleared his appointments for the next two days.
"Why?" Janet, his assistant asked. I need some time to spend with my
son," he said. "Oh, by the way, Janet...thanks for your time!" "Life
is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the
moments that take our breath away,"

Think about this. You may not
realize it, but it's 100% true.

1. At least two people in this world
love you so much they would die for you.
2. At least 15 people in
this world love you in some way.
3. A smile from you can bring
happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
4. Every night,
SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
5. You mean the
world to someone.
6. If not for you, someone may not be living.
7. You are special and unique.
8. When you think you have no chance of
getting what you want, you probably won’t get it, but if you trust God
to do what's best, and wait on His time, sooner or later, you will get
it or something better.
9. When you make the biggest mistake ever,
something good can still come from it.
10. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look... you most likely turned your
back on the world.
11. Someone that you don't even know exists loves
you.
12. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about
the rude remarks.
13. Always tell someone how you feel about them;
you will feel much better when they know and you'll both be happy.
14. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that
they are great.

Nice sentiment, but written badly and is it really serious debating material?

Can you sort out the grammar on it, then I'll move it somewhere more sensible.

I refuse to read anything that doesn't use proper grammatical format.

Look up "Paragraph", then apply.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.
