Having a disability is not easy. For those who have a small issue but are still able to work, it can be devastating. What about those that want to have somewhat of a normal life but can’t because they don’t fit into the mold? One theater in Connecticut is taking matters into their own hands and doing what they can to help those with disabilities to be overcomers.
The Prospector Theater
in Ridgefield has opened their arms and their doors to those with a disability. In fact, there are more than 60% of their staff that has a classified health condition stated yahoo.com
. This means that the workers might be sitting in wheelchairs or have an aide beside them to help, but they are working and loving it. What a great way to give back to the community and show people that being different is okay.
The lessons that life teaches can be harsh. For these few lucky people, they know what it is like to face the cruel public. While most people are kind and caring, they have encountered a few not-so-nice. This particular theater was tired of hiring teenagers who wouldn’t show up to work for a number of reasons. These people are an untapped pool and they are passionate about coming to work. They are dedicated, loyal and some of the best employees that a company could have. The owner of the theater says that he has never regretted his decision to hire these people and will continue his winning streak helping those in need.
When children show generosity and empathy towards, family, acquaintances and even strangers on the street, especially in front of their parents, these parents should swell with pride that they brought up their kids right.
This is the case of a mother driving down the road with her teenage son after a heavy snowstorm. According to news reports, Forbes reports the teen saw something that upset him and without explaining to his mother, simply told her stop the car. Ray Lane says that she apparently did as he requested, and the teen jumped out and ran towards an elderly man with a walker who was attempting to shovel snow from his property.
The teen kindly took over the shoveling job and got it done for the senior. Did this mom shed tears? You bet she did shed tears of joy and pride in her young man. Children do not normally learn these gestures of charity and empathy towards other people. Children are naturals at acting out and displaying just the opposite, such as, greed, and selfishness. Parents must teach their kids when they are young about acts of kindness.
It is a sure bet that this mother taught her son all the right things as he was growing up and she should be exceedingly proud of her son’s outcome and caring nature for other people in their time of need. This world could use more of these types of young adults.
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.
Reading the news today it is filled with almost nothing but murder, mayhem, violence, and heart-break. Fortunately there are still some sweet, heartwarming stories among the tragedies. Today Buzzfeed.com has the story of Shelly Golay, a widow who live in Caper, Wyoming.
This past Valentine’s Day Shelly receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers but was unsure of who sent them to her. Her husband, Jim, had passed away the year before due to an inoperable brain tumor. Come to find out that before Jim passed away he set up a plan with their local florist. Every year on Valentine’s Day, for Shelly’s lifetime, she will receive a bouquet of flowers from Jim.
Shelly said that this was something typical of Jim. They shared a fairy-tale romance together, they had found their true love. However, even though they did not get their happily-ever-after Shelly is grateful for the time they did have together.
This story has brought tears to Ray Lane’s eyes, as I’m sure it did for others reading it. Finding real love is hard, finding true love can be nearly impossible. What these two shared is something precious and every year Shelly will get a beautiful floral reminder of that, although I’m sure she doesn’t need one. While their ending was tragic, at least they found each other and spent the time they had together.
