Respite from Fort Hood, etc., etc.

Whenever  we get a few days, like the last few days,  where there are such horrific stories (Fort Hood Massacre, Orlando Office Shooting, Ohio Serial Killer, etc.) that make you question the value of “human nature”, you just need some way to regain some sense of humanity.  It is one messed up, sick world we live in, but there is still the other side of the coin.  We are not always so desperate and depraved.  Occasionally, some of us DO do the right thing.  To remind myself of this fact I have bookmarked the following story.  It’s nothing on a par with a Mother Teresa, or anything that ultra-virtuous.  It’s just a simple story of compassion, class and sportsmanship that resonates with me.  Hopefully, it will touch you, as well.

    Dear Yur,

    It’s during times like these that we need to be reminded that compassion and fairplay still exists in this very dysfunctional world.

    Thank you for sharing this story with us.

    JoAnn

    Sometimes the smaller things can give us the most hope. Thanks for appreciating it, and the favorable comment.
