Stories that give me a little hope for the Human race . . .

Since I’m posting stories about idiotic stuff on the main page I thought it might be good to offer the opposite here. Sometimes people can have a little common sense. (There will be stories . . . soon as I find a few.)

Listen, I’ve been keeping an eye out for a story that’s a good example of what common sense can do. Really, I have. I’m not talking about those cutesy feel-good stories that make you say “Aw”, or a “human interests” kind of story. No, I mean a real, honest example of common sense. Unfortunately, there just don’t seem to be any out there right now. I don’t know if the news agencies that I follow just don’t report stuff like that, or if there’s just a dry spell right now because of the holidays (for some reason people seem to go nuts this time of year), but I haven’t been having any luck. So, I thought if someone else has a good example I’d invite them to post it here. Just put it in the comments. Good luck.

Yay! I finally found a story where a group of individuals exercised some common sense, and a little bit of humanity as well. A group of Sheriff’s deputies and Movers wouldn’t evict a 103-year-old woman from her home in Atlanta. The woman, Vita Lee, has lived in the home for more than fifty years, and now shares it with her 83-year-old daughter. You can read the full story and watch the video at www.msnbc.com.

I say bravo to those men who refused to physically remove this woman and her daughter from their home. Anyone with a little bit of common sense could have seen it was not the right thing to do. If the bank who held the mortgage bothered to pay attention to anything other than their own bottom line, perhaps they would have realized it as well. Well, one can always hope.
