I’m frequently getting politics overload, so I go looking for news unrelated to politics; sometimes it’s harder to find than at other times. I found several stories to today that I’d like to share as part of this blog hop. The whole idea is to remember that there is more in the world than scandal, negativity, and self-interest.
Here, a young man found a wallet and cash and returned it to the owner’s home. The occupants was unwilling to open the door for a stranger, so she had to use the security surveillance to figure out who to thank. This was an every-day act of kindness – we all could have been this teen or this owner.
In a story close to home, a family’s dog took a field trip with another dog and was lost. There was an unsuccessful search for weeks. A woman who knew nothing of the lost dog heard that hikers reported hearing a dog up a nearby mountain and knew that she was determined to help. She and a friend hiked up the mountain to search for the source of the mysterious barking. It wasn’t a good place for any dog, much less the elderly lab the whole town had given up searching for. This makes me feel good for the dog, her owners, and the hikers. The poor dog looks like it was rough, but she made it home!
I hesitated to post this, because it involves a company, not an individual. But I was looking for articles of humanitarian aid from non-government groups to Puerto Rico. I had a hard time finding much, and that hurts. Royal Caribbean, however is donating one of its ships to take supplies and evacuate people. Now that’s what I’m talking about! Stepping up and helping out.
