THINK HUMANITY'S GONE TO THE DOGS?



This dog is showing humanity, but so are a lot of humans:





































Sometimes it comes back to you:

So how about a random act of kindness from you?

  1. Its the good things like this we rarely see in the news nowadays.
    As far as the police teddy bears, My daughter would always donate her old stuffed animals to the police and fire dept to hand to children during distressed calls.

  5. Thank you, thank you, thank you! This post should be required reading for all news addicts. It's the perfect antidote to some of the stuff going on in the world today. I'd much rather focus on the kindness. You made my eyes leak, but in a very good way.

    Have a super weekend.

  6. When I was a newspaper reporter, a charity announced that they would get teddy bears for police officers to give to children. When they made the announcement, I was assigned to cover it and got all the men in the group to hug teddy bears for a photo. They laughed.

    Love,

  7. More than a few of those heart-warming kindnesses brought happy tears to my eyes. I've done a few random acts myself. Helped elderly people carry groceries, taken hot or cold drinks to those homeless people who stand near shopping centres selling that magazine I can't now remember the name of. I've dropped a dollar or two into the till when scanning groceries for someone who really needed the items, real food or baby nappies, no junk items, but was short just that extra bit of cash. I listen when someone just needs to get something off their chest. During the last blackout here when neighbours couldn't cook dinner, I handed out precooked food from my freezer, stuff that could be eaten cold, like sausages. it's just what you do when people are in need.

  9. These were well worth reading. Gave me a nice lift. Going back to the fourth from the top, the American Red Cross includes teddy bears in its basic disaster supplies to give to children. In the aftermath of 911, we gave them to the emergency personnel working the pile at ground zero in NYC (we had set up a respite center on site where they could eat and rest since most refused to go home). Many not only cradled the bears while sleeping but tucked them into their heavy coats when they went back to work.

  10. You really raised my spirits. I have been so angry about the Sweden stories, I just finished venting on my blog. You can read it tomorrow. But I also realize that by getting angry, the new regime is winning, something that makes me even more mad. So with your post in mind, I will seek out good stories instead of reading all the bad stuff. Thank you, my friend.

    1. You know how I feel about the new regime, but don't get angry; sign petitions. I'm glad I could help you a little!!
