6. Good on ya!

As I said, there are lots of good, unsung heros. We just don't hear about them all that often because a) they don't tend to toot their own horn and b) bad news sells better than good news.

I read one today. An autistic boy (looked to be somewhere around 12-13) called 911 because he couldn't find his teddy bear. Autistic boy was white. Officer who responded was black. Responding officer helped the boy find his Teddy Bear, calmed him down, and left with a big grin on his face.
