Germany soccer star shows support to the host country Brazil

  • Published in Sports

Germany soccer midfielder Mesut Ozil truly appreciated host nation Brazil’s hospitality throughout the world tournament.  He enjoyed and appreciated it so much so, that he has announced that he will sponsor sugeries of 23 Brazilian children, one for every member of his World Cup winning Germany team.  Sports in so many ways are truly more then just a game, and Ozil has proved the impact that these special athletes can have on everyone.    


On his Facebook page he wrote –

"Dear fans,
Prior to the #WorldCup I supported the surgery of eleven sick children. Since the victory of the #WorldCup is not only due to eleven players but to our whole team, I will now raise the number to 23. This is my personal thank-you for the hospitality of the people of Brazil."

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

A pit bull is being hailed as a hero after saving his owner from a house fire.  Jackie Bonasera was drying her hair in her Long Island, NY home when she heard her dog, Cain, barking loudly.  When she ran downstairs, she saw that the house was on fire.  She immediately ran out of the house without injury thanks to Cain.

"He's definitely the town hero. He's a pit bull, too," Jackie said. "They have such bad reps, but he's such a good boy.”

And that's what's good,





Soldier saves man in wheelchair on subway tracks

A man in a wheelchair was trying to read a sign across the tracks at the Metro Center station in Washington, DC when his wheelchair rolled and fell off the platform.  As this was happening US Army Spc. Michael Menchaca was on his way down to catch the subway when he noticed something go over the track. 

Menchaca instantly jumped down to try and free the man, but initially struggled to free the man from the seat belt.  Two others good Samaritans jumped down to help, and together they were able to save the man before the subway came through.  

"It was just the right thing," Menchaca said. "Pretty much like anyone else would have done."  Army Spc. Michael Menchaca is now being considered for the Soldier’s Medal, which is the Army’s highest peacetime award.

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