There are good people out there
So angry this week. So angry. Self righteous American leftists. Self righteous Trump supporters. The Bourke Street monster. And a journo asks the female Premier of NSW why she hasn’t had kids. What is wrong with people?
Thankfully there was a lovely story at tonight’s Bourke Street vigil about two heroes. Two ordinary people. Who stepped up to help those hurt on Friday until ESOs relieved them.
A taxi driver and an ordinary guy who has had life saver training.
There is hope in the world. There are people who care, who love and have compassion. Who help other people in need without seeking glory or recognition.
These are the people of Melbourne that remind us that despite all the crap on our social media feed and in the papers, there is good, self-sacrifice and hope.
Bad people do bad things, but many ordinary people do wonderful things.
Remember that next time when someone returns your lost wallet, when a stranger says good morning, when someone makes you a cup of tea at the hospital, when you see Hatzolah, Jewish Care or CSG volunteers busting a gut to help people.
