Man and dog save two lives

A Hero is defined as a person who has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act. On this day, a dog and its owner are praised as true heroes. 
 
Two girls were tobogganing in a riverside park when they found themselves on a sheet of ice extending from the riverbank.  Adam Shaw was walking on a bridge with his dog when he heard the screams from the girls.  One girl had fallen in the water and the other was trying to help her up.  When Shaw finally arrived on the scene, both girls were in the water. 
 
Shaw was able to pull one girl out, but the other had drifted out of reach.  He acted quickly by tying the leash to the dog, and the the dog jumped in the water.  The girl managed to get both hands on the dog "Rocky", and Shaw called for him.  Rocky swam to Shaw with the girl holding on tight. 
 
Rocky and Shaw were both honored at a local fire station, and we are glad to say that the girls are both home safe.  Thank you Rocky and Shaw for your heroic acts!
 
 
Have a great day, and may the Good News be yours,

228 customers pay for the next person in line at Tim Hortons

A random act of kindness went on for hours at a Tim Hortons coffee and doughnut shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

It was a few days before Christmas and one happy customer decided to pay for the person behind them in the drive-through.  This became contagious!  The next person paid for the next, and so on and so on.  Then customers inside the shop started catching on and they started paying for the customer behind them.  This went on for three hours!!

“[The staff members]were calling out the numbers, ‘We’re at 162,’ and they made a really big deal of it,” the manager, Troy Thompson stated. “I think that’s what helped keep it going because nobody wanted to be the one who broke that streak.”

How awesome is that?!!  Way to pay it forward!

 

Peace & Love,

Russell Crowe donates $250,000 to a Jewish school fire-bombed in Montreal

"What we do in life echoes in eternity" Russell Crowe firmly stated as Maximus in his Oscar winning performance in Gladiator.  Crowe's good deed for a Jewish school in Montreal will certainly be remembered for generations to come.

In 2004, Russel Crowe was filming Cinderella Man in Toronto when United Talmud Torahs elementary school was fire-bombed as a hate crime.  Anti-Semitic comments were found on the outside if the bombed library.


Crowe was very upset that someone would do such a horrific crime to a place of learning.  He immediately offered to help rebuild the library.  In addition to Crowe's wonderful donation and attention, many more donations poured in from across the country.

There are wonderful people in the world.  When we all work together, we can accomplish anything.

 

Peace & Love,

Jon
