    Positive News Stories! :smile:

    I would like to find out if you know of any happy news stories. Stories of heroism. Stories of cute animals. Sweet and fluffy stories. My goal is to have a positive and upbeat thread in the Civics section! So, please no derails complaining about politics or other negative stuff. That is for other threads. Not for this one.

    A cop saved a girl from a house fire! http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Her...444530823.html Well, it stonks that the house caught on fire, but hey! The girl was saved!

    Dogs save kids form snake attack! https://www.today.com/pets/hero-pit-...attack-t115252
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    This isn't something great, but it was touching - for me. OK, I'm in the bread aisle this morning while shopping - I struck up a conversation with an older black couple (just too many bread choices to make a decision). They were my age 64+. I was wearing a Marine Corps Vet hat, we spoke for a while, they knew I served during the Vietnam war. As we ended the conversation the woman put her hand on my arm and quietly and sincerely said - welcome home. Something I didn't hear when I got back in 72. It did my heart much good.

The day is coming when you will wake to find, beyond all hope, that you have attained it, or else, that it was within your reach and you have lost it forever.” C.S. Lewis

    I didn't know you were a veteran.

    It's not new news, but a couple of weeks ago I saw some deer crossing the road not far from where I work, which for me is extremely unusual.

    And I think this thread ought to be stickied.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    A firefighter happened to find this car accident in the nick of time. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...=.5083b41caaaa

    Yes, I was a tank commander - 3rd Marine Division.

    Driving my wife, I swerved to avoid a pheasant. Happily, nothing was coming the other way. All three were saved!
