OK, I don't know if any of you heard about this story:

UPDATED: Boy at Chicago hospital after rescue from Michigan City sand hole : Michigan City News


But I just found out my dad was one of the people helping. I'm so proud of him right now, and I pray that little boy recovers completely.

I pray and hope that she will somehow survive her illnesses.

OK, this isn't a feel good story at all, but it is a follow up to this post, and I didn't know where else to put it:

Talia Joy Castellano Dead: Inspirational YouTube Star Dies After 6-Year Battle With Cancer

Devastating as this is, it is great to know that she lived her life to the fullest. Most people just drift through life, but she didn't and she made the most of her short time here.

"In a hundred years, I would like to be remembered as the bubbly girl who wanted to do something about childhood cancer," Talia said.
You will, Talia.

ETA: Wow, look at how her YouTube fans are remembering her!

I love it when humanity does something straight from the heart, and shows it's compassion.

That's something to feel good about

George H.W. Bush Shaves His Head In Support Of Ailing Boy

KENNEBUNKPORT, MAINE -- President George H. W. Bush this week joined members of his Secret Service detail in shaving his head to show his support for the two year-old son of a detail member who is being treated for leukemia and started losing his hair.

The 89 year-old commander-in-chief took the unusual step earlier this week after learning, and seeing, that many members of his security detail had already gone under the razor to show their support for young Patrick, whose father Jon is a member of the Bush Protective Division (BPD). (Surname being withheld per family's request.)

BPD members have also launched a website at Patrick's Pals to assist with Patrick's medical bills, and organized the Inaugural Patrick's Pals Motorcycle Benefit Run on August 10th in Kennebunkport -- a 50-mile motorcycle ride through the Maine countryside followed by a lunch and silent auction to raise funds for Patrick's treatments.

Once President and Mrs. Bush learned of this "Patrick's Pals" effort, they made a donation and President Bush volunteered to shave his head as well. The Bushes lost their second child, Robin, to leukemia 60 years ago this October at the age of four.

How did you know so much about me?

You don't think Zimmerman saving that family was just a bit *too* convenient. Honestly, you could do so much better than to assume I'm a conspiracy theorist just because I'm unsure about his heroic nature.

(For the record, I don't believe in any of the conspiracy theories that you listed, but nice try my friend!)

I love stories of people with good hearts. Even the comments to this story aren't ruining my thoughts over it.
