Wonderful Wednesday: Water Rescue

There is still good in the world and despite the mainstream media's quest to eradicate all good stories (fear sells!) good deeds still occasionally make the news. Today's story can be found here: http://good-report.com/500/bystanders-save-family-after-plane-crash-into-ocean-2

Its nice to know that there are still people who will risk their own lives to help others. Contrast this with the captain of the ill-fated Costa Concordia. While he had a responsibly to help his passengers and crew he abandoned ship to save himself. These people had no such official responsibility and yet they came to the help of those people stuck in an upside down airplane underwater.

In the midst of the current political season and all the awfulness it brings, I was glad to read this story.

So I'll close by citing those wise sages of old, Bill and Ted: "Be excellent to each other!"
