2. This one is very odd:

"Rahm Emmanuel, Mayor of Chicago, interrupted a womanís phone interview to give a recommendation. "

If this was a random encounter, what did he know about her that he could recommend her?

9. One day at a gas station I saw a man pay with

change for two gallons. His car had clearly seen better days and he looked weathered. The man behind him in line assessed the situation, handed a $20.00 bill to the cashier and told her to add it to the other man's tank. The recipient of the kindness could not have been more grateful, and I was reminded of how fortunate I am and what a privilege it is to be in a position to help someone else.

Thanks for turning me onto it. That student answer thing is also the reason we were taught in college to be very specific about how we worded questions on tests!

18. There are a lot of caring people in this world.

After my wife was just diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer, when we were leaving the doctor's office, she said to our daughter and me "Let's walk over to the Farmer's Market down the street and get some ice cream." On the way there she saw a homeless man sitting on the sidewalk with a sign saying that he was hungry. "If you're here when we return, I'll have a sandwich for you", she told the stranger. On the way out of the market she stopped at a hoagie stand and asked the vendor to make her a sandwich for the man she saw sitting on the curb. "Here, take this one. There's nothing wrong with it. The person who ordered it didn't show up for it. No charge.", he said. She asked me to buy the man a bottle of water and gave him both before we went on to our car for the drive back home.

26. When I lived in L.A., there were a few times I left a note for parking enforcement...

and was never ticketed.

They were always earnest requests on my part. In fact, one of them was because someone backed out of a driveway and demolished the rear-end of my car, then took off. I worked upstairs from the incident (it was just before Christmas) and we heard it. One of my co-workers said, "Oh (C Moon) your car!"

I ran downstairs and found several witnesses had taken the license plate number. It was an older man picking up his wife. He had pressed the gas by mistake and flew in reverse hitting my car. The two cars were suspended in the air, and his wife ran over opened the door and got in. The cars hit the ground and he sped off.

After contacting the police, and tracking the license #, I was reimbursed by their insurance. But you know how that goes: you have a running car, they give you the Bluebook $500 bucks for it, and you can't buy another running car for that.

I was car-less for some time.

Sorry for the long-winded story.

30. It would be nice to do such things for people as buy tires for someone who needs them.

But there are many small things we can do to help others.

I have even stopped traffic on our country roads to aid a turtle in crossing. By doing so I hope I have instilled in my children and grand children a love and compassion for all beings.

34. As noted above in #24...

...what a lovely antidote to the picture of the women screaming at refugee children.

I don't ordinarliy like to start my day by crying, but this was heartwarming and tear-jerking all at once.

Principles of universality and solidarity makes for a great society to live in.

I'd much rather live in the society illustrated by these images, rather than the one imaged here.
