Yeah, I know .. Not political or even controversial but .. I like it!

Quote:
A Virginia high school senior who spends snow days clearing snow and ice from neighborhood driveways and sidewalks saw something out of his mother's car window that compelled him to tell her to stop the car, CBS Richmond affiliate WTVR-TV reports.

Teresa Adams and her son Tommy were driving home from the DMV when they drove past an older man who was trying to shovel snow from his driveway. The man was using a walker to get around.

"Tommy said 'Mamma stop the car,'" Teresa Adams said. "I got scared and asked, 'What's wrong?'"

He said, "There's an older man with a walker shoveling snow -- I'll help him out," she added.

Tommy approached the man and asked him for the snow shovel.

"He looked surprised," Teresa Adams said. "I was so proud, I started to cry."



"The thing is, you cannot judge a race. Any man who judges by the group is a pea-wit. You take men one at a time."
Sergeant 'Buster' Kilrain - 'Gettysburg' (1993)

I figured the story would end with "and then the cops shot him"
Cool story.

If it is permitted by the rules, I am giving everyone of you a rep for being kind souls.
(And I KNOW that some of you and I have had our fallouts!)

We need more news like this. There are good people in this screwed up world. People who just do what needs to be done, not wanting or expecting anything for doing it.
