When we met, Richard was a seventeen-year-old Jewish kid. I, at twenty-one, was a Catholic college senior. One day there he was, in the faculty lounge of his high school, where I’d been assigned to fulfill a practice teaching requirement.

I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I did its telling.
