Have the courtesy to wave

My name is Shawn Caldwell. I am 16 years old and love to play tennis. I live in Lake Point and love the farming community that Lake Point started out as. But with time comes growth, and people follow growth.

Through the five years I have lived here, I have seen families move in and out. Some are friendly and some are not. And the ones that aren’t friendly never wave or wave back. I believe it is a decent courtesy to wave at someone or wave back when someone waves at you. Waving is a symbol of happiness and joy, so when you wave at someone and they don’t wave back, you have to fight through the emotion of rejection. We have all had this happen to us and some don’t think it is a big deal, while others like myself have fought through the experience. 

In my opinion, if someone goes out of their way to wave, you should have the courtesy to wave back. All it takes is a few seconds and muscles. So if you were having a bad day and someone waved at you, would you wave back?
