A Short Story With a Big Lesson
Everyone admired the Anderson family. Walter and Joan had 5 children and had worked hard all their lives to give their children the best of American life: each child received a car when they were a junior in high school – provided they had a 3.2 GPA. Two children went to FSU, two went to University of Miami, and one to Cornell. They all enjoyed the benefits from Walter and Joan’s small business – a flower import business next to the Miami airport. Walter and Joan had started the business 45 years ago, the year they were married, and it had grown into a business with 19 employees and many good customers including Publix.
