There was an article in my local paper about a week ago of a young man named Brock Nowak, who for his 13th birthday donated 10 inches of his long blond hair to Locks For Love. He has been growing his hair for three years and even after they cut off the required 10 inches, he still has hair to his shoulders. This is an amazing young man in my opinion. To be so selfless at 13 years of age is a wonderful thing.
His mother is very proud of her son the article states and I can see why. She has raised a kind and caring individual who thinks of others first, rather than himself. Interestingly enough, Brock does not care what others think of him. He said in the article that "Sometimes it is better to be unique than average."
You know what, he is right. I would love to be thought of as a unique person rather than just being remembered as being ordinary through out my life. Brock, I applaud you for what you did and I hope others take note of it and follow suit. I truly believe it is better to give than receive.
