In the big scheme of things, it’s the little things

On Friday night, Aaron Purmort of Minneapolis was driving home from work when he had a seizure. He’s been undergoing chemo for a brain tumor for more than a year.

In the chaos that accompanies these sorts of things, nobody was likely much concerned about the fate of his car.

But somebody was. And they left this note in Aaron’s jacket pocket.


“We have no idea who called 911 or moved our car to safety and left this note in Aaron’s jacket pocket,” his wife, Nora, wrote on her Facebook page. “But we sure are grateful for them and their Minnesota spirit. Hoping this post find a way into their news feed so they know how thankful we are for their actions. You saved my husband and that is pretty damn rad.”

    Okay, even I have to admit that was one great “feel good” story. Thanks. It made my day.

      I definitely agree!

    That’s what I like to see, and hear about… That is the MN “kind and compassionate” story I like to read, any day over “MN nice.”

    Doing the right thing, at the right time… A random act of kindness, done anonymous.

    Sometimes, those “little things” are actually “big things” in disguise.
