A+ A A-

In times of panic, people are often able to do “super-human” acts.  Adam Simmons was working on the brakes of his Jeep when his jack gave out and the vehicle collapsed on his left leg. Adam's daughter Rachel heard her father’s screams and came out running.  

 

“I ran out of the house and I saw him under my car. I just lifted so he could get free. It was just the adrenaline rushing right through my body. I don’t know if I would have been able to do it otherwise” Rachel said. 

 

Luckily Adam’s injuries were minor, but I guess it’s a true statement that daughters will always take care of you.

 

Have a great day, and let the good news be yours,

Jeremy

When 5 year old Jocelyn Rojas went missing in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, two teenage boys jumped on their bikes to help the police search for her. 

Less than a mile away, Temar Boggs, 15, and his friend spotted Jocelyn in a sedan.  The two teenagers began their pursuit of the car. 

  "Every time we'd go down the street, he'd turn back around, and then ... we'll follow him", Temar said.

The pursuit lasted 15 minutes.  When the driver couldn't evade the teenagers, he got nervous, and let Jocelyn out and sped away.

"He stopped at the end of the hill and let her out, and she ran to me and said that she needed her mom," Temar said.

"He's our hero. There is just no words to say," Jocelyn's grandmother Tracey Clay said.

Myles Nelson, 7, thought of a sweet way to make the world a safer place… chocolate bullets :)  The world in the mind of a child :)

Myles decided to write a letter to Vice President Joe Biden about his idea.  Little did he know that the Vice President would write him back!

“I am sorry it took me so very long to respond to your letter,’’ Biden wrote. “I really like your idea. If we had guns that shot chocolate, not only would our country be safer, it would be happier. People love chocolate. You are a good boy."

His teachers said Myles was all smiles at school :)

And that's what's good,
