Let's beat cancer sooner

There is good in the world

27 Mar 2016 10:48

Hi everyone,

I have just came across a few items I would love to share with you all. We all hear bad stories in the media on a daily basis and good news seems to be in short supply. But there are lots of good news stories out there; it's just they dont get reported like they should. Thats why I am starting this thread because I always feel good when reading good news. I hope you like these pictures of goodness.

Well done to him, Brian

Hi Sue,

Glad you liked the story. I dont know about you, but I always get a big lift when I read stories like that. I am hoping by starting this thread, it may help a few people feel better if only for a short while. I have several more stories to come and hope to make this a regular post

Since having had and recovered from prostate cancer, I have noticed there are lots of good people helping others but these acts dont seem to be considered newsworthy so hope this post may  redress the balance a little.

Take care, sending best wishes and kind thoughts your way, Brian.

This is so heartwarming, Brian, and what a lovely idea for a thread.  Like you, good news, NICE news, even if it's the smallest thing, always lifts my spirits and restores faith in human nature, something sorely needed these days unfortunately. 

Thanks for this, Brian.

Hi folks,

Thanks Sue and Hazel.Glad you liked yesterdays post.

Now thats what I call above and beyond the call of duty and so nice to read about kindness like this.

I does restore faith in people like you said Hazel. I am convinced there are lots of things like this happening but it goes unreported, Brian.

How lovely, I bet they enjoy it as much as the kids, you get back what you give as the saying goes. I expect it gives parents, staff and passers-by a smile too, which has to be good. 

The firemen yesterday were brilliant as well.

Thanks Brian.

Hi Brian

There is an unsung gruop of people who I greatly admire who go about their good work everyday. These are the army of cleaners and helpers who assist elderly and disabled people. I encounter them most days in the course of my work. They work for minimum wage but go far beyond their duties and well over their paid time limits by doing that bit extra, over and above, out of the goodness of their hearts, running errands in their spare time or calling in out of hours to check that someone is OK. Striking up friendships with folk who often lead quite solitary lives. They absolutely restore my faith in human beings. Kim

Hi folks,

Thanks Kim I fully agree.

This was so nice to see as so many got killed by seabirds, Brian

Thanks.
