Squeaking Some Good News Out of All This
It's times like this that we get to witness the goodness of people in this great country. Here are just a few examples of people stepping up and doing what they can.
-All over the country people have been putting back up their Christmas lights. A woman quoted her dad, who hung up his lights "The world needs this right now". This has been catching on all around the country.
-A Connecticut pizza place hs been delivering free pizzas twice a day to a local hospital. Our medical professionals have been working their butts off in a potentially dangerous environment and a little free pizza probably means a lot.
-A couple of young people in New York have gathered up some volunteers to deliver groceries and meds to the elderly and shut ins. So far, 1300 people have volunteered.
-In Sweden, an IKEAS store found a bunch of face masks (50,000) in a storeroom and donated them to a local hospital.
-Business is great at Trader Joe's and they are handing out bonuses to help their employees.
