I hope that these stories of simple acts of kindness from around the world will remind you of the good in people. In these days of 24/7 news that comes directly into our phones, tablets and TV, the message sometimes gets lost, because the news is rarely positive.
Donna Wickert of Slingerlands, New York, was mowing her lawn because her husband couldn’t do it anymore. He had serious health issues and was also undergoing chemo.
Her neighbour Eddie called over and told her not to do it anymore and that he would take care of it.She is so overwhelmed by her neighbours kindness, because she has to take her husband to the hospital and to not have to worry about the lawn, is such a load of her mind.
However, Eddie who is a firefighter, wishes to downplay his efforts and really does not want all the attention. He says that this is the way that he was raised, doing service in the community as he was growing up. To always try and do something good for people, if you can.
Donna is so grateful that there are good neighbours like Eddie. She says that to her, he is a hero and a great example of how we all, should treat each other.
