For those of you who think I am a cynical schmuck, I do have a soft side...and sometimes there are stories that just put me in my place.
Check out this article about a blind Vancouver, Washington man who holds no grudge against the drunk driver who hit him three times and broke several of his bones. This sweet man's only Easter wish was to attend mass, but the care facility he lives in does not provide that service.
Well guess what?
Here's the follow up. Not only did he get his wish - an anonymous woman paid for a paratransit service to take him to mass today - but literally hundreds of people who read the story called with offers of help.
They want to start a fund to help him get back and forth to church.
There's a bit of humanity just in time for Easter.
