Open Features: Elvis And The Duck

Mary Clemons tells of a duck that was the recipient of a small kindness.

It was the eight of January and James’ dearest friends had come to the park to remember Elvis Presley’s birthday. Now they had gone to their evening entertainment, but James had opted to be alone to reflect on the man who had been truly a king.
James had only met the star once, but that one time had redirected his life. Elvis had never known how his act of kindness had saved James’ life.
One lone duck made its way to fluff its feathers at him. Reaching over to the remaining cake, James threw it a piece. That single movement brought the rest of the flock.
James smiled, “Ducky, my friend, I have passed a small kindness to you. Who, I wonder, will you pass it to?”
