By Bridgette Marcus Everyday, I witness one of my best friend’s inner qualities of honesty and responsibility. And, I have a story to share. It was 2:24, one minute till Mincha. While everyone was rushing into the lunchroom to go pray, this friend was in the bathroom. The bell rang and it was 2:25. The praying teacher gave us a speech on how important punctuality is and how everyone should be on time for Mincha because it counted as a regular class and regular lateness. While all the girls were beginning to stand up to pray the Amidah my friend walked in. She was late. The praying teacher signaled to this girl to take her Siddur and sit by the table as opposed to chairs. This also meant that, at the end of the prayers, this girl would have to explain why she was late. After Mincha, the praying teacher went to her office forgetting to speak to my friend. I asked my friend if she wants to come to the school store with me. She said, “Yes.” But, first she has to go to the praying teacher’s office to explain why she was late. Her honesty is such a wonderful influence to everyone!
