Our evening TV 'news' usually manages to find enough bad news to fill their broadcast time, so I am grateful for any occasional bit of good news.

This morning, I found a heart-warming story in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette: In a local restaurant, a total stranger came up to a dining family that included a young boy weighed down with the accoutrement's of a cancer victim. The man comforted them, saying only that the boy reminded him of his son.

His contact was the one bright moment of their day.

Yes, there are good people in this often cruel world.
