A news antidote

There are lots of big stories in the news today I’d give anything to forget. And there’s one that’s not in the news that I’d never want to.

Here. Let this kid make your day.

The world is still full of 9-year-old kids with big dreams. And big people who give a rip about 9- year-old kids. It just doesn’t feel like it.

This is as good a time as any for me to remind you that you probably know people doing good things for other people. Tell me.

    Bob Collins, thank you for posting things like this! I really really love reading your articles. And I also am extremely happy when I happen to be listening to The Current when you and Mary chat. I used to have an alarm on my phone for it… I’m always missing it now!

    Anyway, this story is so touching. Caine is amazing!
