Yes America, There Really Are Good People!


fireman helping an elderly vet

“A few weeks ago, a 93-year-old WWII vet in Fort Wayne collapsed from fatigue while clearing snow from his driveway. After this week’s heavy snow, four firemen who had come to the man’s aid returned to his home — to shovel his driveway.”  (courtesy of Facebook)

Yes, there are great men and women in our country.  Yes, there are great men and women who care about others and do what they can to help a person in need.  Yes, there are great men and women who  do what they can to make the world a little bit better one day at a time.

And that is the measure by which we need to live.  As Christ admonished us all: “Love one another as I have loved you”.

Nothing else matters.
