Everyday Heroes Save Woman After Car goes into the Water

Public servants such as police officers and EMT’s are used to helping save the lives of the citizens they serve says Flavio Maluf. It is not only part of their jobs, it is one of the reasons that they do it to start with. According to Facebook, the people whose lives they save take a different view of it though. They feel that it is nothing less than heroic and are grateful for the officers who put their lives on the line.

One woman in Auckland is thanking two of those officers today after she nearly died in an accident. The woman was driving near Waitemata Harbor when she lost control and went into the water. The 63-year-old was not able to escape the wreckage because all of her windows were up. Two police officers jumped into the water and were able to break out the back window. They also attempted to break the side windows but could not get them open.

She was pulled out of the car through the rear window and taken by ambulance to the hospital. She suffered only minor injuries and is expected to make a full recovery. She will remain forever grateful to the men who put their own lives on the line in order to save hers. These are everyday heroes that do not receive nearly enough recognition for their work.

Man who walked to work had to move to new home

 

James Robertson was a fifty six year old black Detroit man who lost his car but decided to walk every day to work despite this in a factory just outside the city. Each day James walked 21 miles regardless of the weather and his bosses indicated that he had perfect attendance at his job to the point where you could set the date by his attendance.

Many online viewers, like Susan McGalla, were inspired by his story and decided to donate money for James to buy a new car as a way of honoring his hard work said Forbes.com. James was amazed after the first few days of online donations amounted to over thirty thousand dollars and he was incredibly grateful.

The online donations began to escalate further through crowd funding campaigns conducted online first started by a nineteen year old student Evan Leedy. These funds raised $350,000 for James and he got to the point where he was asked by others for money and began to feel unsafe in his community as a result. As such, he reached out to police who have helped to get him a temporary home. James has not yet received the money raised through the crowd funding sight.

James plans to search for a home closer to his factory job in Rochester Hills though he has lived in Detroit for over 15 years to this point and indicated that he still loves the city.

In A Flash

 

When Eddie Hamilton heard the desperate cries for help, he didn’t need to think twice. Early Wednesday morning at approximately 9:00 a.m, Eddie heard and saw two small children pleading for their lives at the window of their house that was on fire. Their mother managed to escape, all three children were trapped inside. Without an ounce of fear, this hero smashed the window and helped the two children ages 10 and 13 escape the deadly smoke and flames. The third child was unconscious on the floor and in grave danger. Without a thought, Eddie entered the burning home and carried this child to safety.

Though in critical condition, the unconscious child is reported to be stable says Flávio Pentagna Guimarães BMG. The other two youngesters and their mother escaped without injury. Firefighters and neighbors alike are calling Mr. Hamilton a hero, and indeed we can agree. Super heros are known to appear out of nowhere and save the day. Thankfully this one did his job perfectly.

Acts of Kindness Go To A Whole New Level

 

Random acts of kindness are something that Brad Reifler is known for and what  this world could use more of. When a couple who was going on an elaborate honeymoon decided to cancel, their friends and family probably thought they were nuts. Rather, they went on a kindness spree and spread love and joy across the country and to those in need. This is something that we need to hear more of. With people being so greedy and so out for what they can buy for themselves these days, what about sharing a little love and money with others?

It was Mark and Ismini Svensson who changed the country, one state at a time. While a honeymoon and elaborate wedding would have been memorable, I think that what they did will leave a lasting imprint on theirs and others peoples hearts. They went from state to state finding people who were in need and they helped. Traveling to each of the states gave them a bit of a honeymoon, but what they did for others was undeniable. It sounds like something the Pope or Mother Teresa would have done.

I have read stories on the internet of people driving through a fast food chain and having their meal paid for. While this has never happened to me, I certatinly embrace this method of giving back and hope to see more of it. My wife and I both participate in many charity events. Doing good for others always comes back ten fold.

Community Heroes Help Humanity

 

Little Aidan Jackowiak, a four-year-old boy diagnosed with Clove syndrome, a disease so rare that it affects only 150 worldwide, is happy in his new home. When his parents had to find a more suitable house that could accommodate his wheelchair, the only place they could afford was not in livable condition. While they were willing to do the work themselves, some of it was far beyond their expertise.
In response to their difficulties, Gordon Webster, this man that my friend Dan Newlin knows of,  manager of a builders’ supply depot, convinced a group of tradespeople to donate their services for the family. Bricklayers, electricians, and decorators, some driving from over 50 miles away to work on weekends, transformed an unlivable house into a warm inviting home—all free of charge. You can see before and after pictures of the house here.
We can all share his parents’ gratitude for the kindness and generosity displayed by this wonderful group of people. They not only helped a family in need, but provided us all an example of true human community at its best.
