The news these days is often depressing at worst and frustrating at best. It’s easy to get caught up in the spin cycle and let it get us down. Never fear… The News Blender has you covered. Once a week, we feature Something Good and, in return, all you have to do is tell us something good that has happened to you this week, something you are thankful for, a joke, a cute animal story, an inspiring tale of heroics, a Random Act of Kindness… SOMETHING good.
This week’s Something Good is going the extra mile, literally, to help someone in need.
A kind couple took Dennis, an 80 year old gentleman who got lost on his way from Arizona to Wisconsin, under their wing. He’d been driving for a week but kept getting lost. They met him at a truck stop, and when they learned about his situation, they programmed his GPS, filled up his gas tank, called his son to tell him what was happening, and sent him on his way with their phone number.
Dennis called a few minutes later, lost, and the couple decided they only had one choice. They drove to where he was, then lead him safely to his destination, three hours away.
There is so much negative in the world but people are kind and good to one another more often than not and we sometimes forget that.
Now it’s your turn… Tell Me Something Good!
