Something Nice for a Change


I love this story of a young man who rescued a bunch of children from a tipping bus on the Minneapolis bridge tragedy.

To summarise, this 20 year old guy helped 50 children to safety and it later emerged that he had recently dropped out of a skills training programme because he could not afford the fees. 

Since the heroic rescue, he’s been offered an applied science scholarship at a Technology college along with many other offers of help from around the country.  Heartwarming indeed.

But this part is the best . . . ” When President Bush’s staff contacted him to request a photo opportunity, “He was just, like, ‘Nope,’ ” she said.”

  4. You´ve got to admire a man who rescues 50 kids AND tells Bush where to go.

  5. Proves there is still humanity around us, not in the high spheres of our society, though.
