Thank you.
But a happy forum on ATS has got to be a conspiracy. Normally I am shocked at how much hate and insensitivity I come across here. I remember how much anger I would get from just a spelling error.

Smiles are rare, so thanks again.

nice pictures.. good thing i haven't ever lost faith in humanity. we typically only focus on the bad.. that is a huge problem. Focusing on the good usually inspires you to do good.

focusing on the bad makes you paranoid, bitter, depressed and stressed.

You have no idea how much I needed this today. No words can express my gratitude. Lately I have lost all faith in humanity and when I look at my beautiful 9-month old son I feel a sense of guilt for the world he and so many other children will inherit.

I am not a religious person at all, however, I try to follow one of the main teachings of Buddhism. It's very simple. To paraphrase, "always help your fellow man, and if you cannot, at least do no harm."

Awesome post OP. Thank you again.

Sainsbury's actually renamed it giraffe bread for the little girl.

I tried to feel the love and hope, I really did. Too bad I am already dead, and hollow inside... I cannot find the joy that others do from such scenes. That said I applaud the OP for their attempt at bringing some light into this world.

*To everyone else....don't be like shark_feeder, don't give up hope.

This does not mean you are dead and hollow in side. For example,

There is a willow tree in my yard. Years ago, it got hit by lightning. The trunk was damaged, but still pretty good.
Then some hydro guys came in, without our permission, and began attempting to cut down the tree with a chainsaw, cutting vertically into the truck where it was struck by lightning. We came outside, told them to leave, so on and so forth.

So there it sat. A big gaping hole in the trunk of this tree. Struck by lightning; mutilated. We thought that maybe it would heal over and be fine in a year or so. Well, that wasn't the case.

Gradually, the leaves began to die off from the bottom up, but they never reached the top. A fine dust accumulated at the base of the tree from some type of insect that was eating at the trunk. Yet, those insects did not make it to the top of the tree, where it was still alive, and beautiful simply because it was alive.

So away I went. Took the dead limbs off with a chainsaw, used a layer of tree sealer (akin to a rubber), and a lot of expanding foam. The tree is alive, and getting much better.


Your description of being dead and hollow reminds me of this willow tree.

I guess what I am trying to say is, you may not feel love and hope, but it certainly feels you.

I'm glad I'm not the only one to make selfless acts towards others in need...

That made me cry... S&F for sharing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BTW, I'm going to email this link to my mother.
The karma I get when I see someone struggle to come up with a few bucks in line with dipairs, milk, or you know what I mean, I do it. The reward makes my heart grow to a new level of appreciation..

Just amazing, thank you again!

Ha! I missed this part of the story.

From the article you gave;



Sainsbury's said that Chris King had now left the company and had returned to university to study to be a primary school teacher.


Awesome

To the OP, THANKS
As a 42 year old man I now I have a tear in my eye, I shall have to go do something manly to restore my gruff exterior image.

Seriously though its good to see some people doing something good for others for a change rather than doing for oneself.

Brought tears to my eyes, thank you so much for sharing. So many people are so cruel, that you forget about the good in the world. Beautiful.

I agree about the forum for the good side of things and the positive side of man. I third that idea.

Thank you for this post. It is always good to see the compassionate side of our society. Too often we focus on the negative, constantly looking at train wrecks and disaster as the norm while forgetting to notice the good, compassionate, and beautiful aspects of our world. Have a great day!

Im very happy this has been well received and has made so many people feel good
If anyone else has any good news type stories, etc, please post them!!

That is incredible how those passengers actually lifted the train too.

A little while after I started this thread, I found a story about how a Canadian man went to Tim Hortins and purchased 500 coffees, to be given out for free to the next 500 people who are buying coffee. He has done this three time this week, in Edmonton, Calgary, and now Ottawa! Check it out!

Edit; That article is very short. Here is a longer one detailing all three incidences; Call it a Triple Triple

Edit again; It seems as though it is not 1 person responsible for all three events, but rather, others are buying the 500 coffees as well, seemingly inspired by his act of kindness.

Apologies for the double post, but if anyone is looking for websites which focus predominantly on good news, here are a few for you;

The Good News Network

The Daily Good

Everyday Hero



Also, while I was searching for good news-type things, I began to ask myself what it was that made something good. I am not sure I can really answer that fully. Perhaps we can have a discussion on what Good is, what it means, and where you find it
