(CNN) -- Eighteen-year-old Juan Gonzalez was dying alone in hospital, thousand of miles from his Guatemalan home. He was separated from the family he
had traveled to the United States to help support."
"Diagnosed with a chronically weak heart, without much money and lacking resources, Gonzalez seemed bound to die without ever seeing his parents
That changed after CNN aired a story about his plight.
Thanks to the help of a compassionate hospital staff, a U.S. congressman and a concerned community, Gonzalez has been reunited with his parents for
what may be the last time."
I thought that it was important, with all of the doom and gloom going on in the world (and the recent references to fat, lazy Americans -- wink, wink)
that we take the time to realize that there are still really great people in this world. This story, to me, is the epitome of what every human being
should strive to WANT to do for another in need. I realize that we don't all have the means to help others like this (me included), but if we all
simply WANTED to or WOULD if we could, the global outlook would get much brighter.
