Can You Help?


I think I shared this video when CBS Evening News first broadcast the story of a man asking for a kidney for his wife.  That was a few months ago – and Jimmy Sue still hasn’t found a match.

SwillingsI am posting this in the hope that someone who reads this will know someone who knows someone who…well, you get the idea.  This is the type of story that needs sharing – please watch the video and pass it on!


Simple Heroism

Peace On Earth

On the CBS Evening News, Scott Pelley interviewed Nazi death camp survivor Elie Weisel about “Peace on Earth”.  Mr. Weisel suggested that it is up to all of us as individuals to be part of bringing about world peace by simple gestures like helping others.  “Sometimes a handshake has the power of a [olive] branch” says Mr. Weisel.  Watch the full video HERE.

I wonder (as Scott Pelley would say) how we can continue with our small acts of kindness and simple heroism to bring Peace on Earth.  I think I may just have found a resolution for 2013.

What about you?

The Power of a Smile


Most people would not be happy about getting a ticket.  In fact, most would not have very nice things to say about the traffic cop trying to do his or her job.  CBS Evening News followed one cop in LA to see what he was doing differently.  Watch the video in the link below to see what that difference is.

CBS Evening News again ran an incredible “On The Road” story Friday night.  This time the series took viewers to South Carolina and told the story of a man’s love for his wife, and the lengths he has gone to for a chance to ask for a life-saving transplant.  Watch the video and read the story HERE.  Maybe you could be the one to help save a life….
