Good News in the News

This is my favorite type of story: people helping people.

I generally avoid network news, but this weekend I caught a positive story.  In summary, a local veteran who is out of work and living at the veteran’s homeless shelter,  found a wallet with almost $200 and no identification.  With the help of a local police officer, the owner was located and the money was returned to the bicycle courier.

After being featured on the news, this act of kindness has inspired many others to contribute in their own way.  In addition to job offers, the veteran has been offered a trip to visit his family for the holidays.  Support for the shelter has also spiked.
