Warm Your Heart With These Inspirational Stories Of Extraordinary Human Kindness by Michael Snyder for The Economic Collapse Blog
Despite all of the horrible things that we read about in the news, the truth is that there are still people out there that are making great sacrifices in order to do good for others. My hope is that these extraordinary stories of human kindness will inspire others to act likewise. We live at a moment in history when darkness is growing rapidly all around us, and our society can feel so very cold at times. Those that follow my work regularly already know that I write a lot about this growing darkness. In fact, just yesterday I posted articles about the collapse of the American familyand our wildly out of control drug crisis. One of the reasons why I write so much about the darkness is so that people will start realizing the need for radical solutions. As Kirk Cameron has aptly noted, it can be exceedingly difficult to “try to give a cure to a patient who wasn’t convinced of his disease”. It is time for American to wake up. The status quo is not acceptable, we are steamrolling down a road that leads to national suicide, and we need to understand the error of our ways before it is too late.
What we should all want is a society that is filled with love. As humans, we are meant to love and to be loved, but love seems to be in such short supply in our nation today.
Fortunately, there are still a lot of people out there that are trying to do the right thing.
Let me start by sharing the story of a five-year-old girl named Katelynn Hardee. When she heard that some other families were having a really hard time paying for school lunches for their kids, she decided to take matters into her own hands…
After overhearing another child’s mother say she was having a hard time paying for an after-school program, Katelynn Hardee, 5, spoke to her own mother about how she could help other students.
Katelyn set up a cocoa-and-cookies stand, and it turned into a success. She soon decided the money she made would be used to pay off the lunch debt of 123 students in her San Diego County school district.
“I don’t want people to be hungry,” Hardee told NBC San Diego, which did not say how much the bill was.
Sometimes it takes a child to remind the rest of us how we are supposed to live.
I really enjoy interacting with small children, because their hearts have not yet been corrupted by the great evil that permeates our society at every level. They instinctively understand the value in helping others, and they take great joy in making a difference.
Never lose your joy, because it is a source of fuel that will propel you in the direction of becoming the person that you were always meant to be.
And if you have lost your joy along the way, do whatever you can to get it back.
We all have a purpose, and we all have the capacity to do something really special.
Just consider the story of Nancy Banta of Rumson, New Jersey. According to her daughter, she has been crocheting blankets for sick children in the hospital for many years…
“My mom has been donating crocheted blankets to sick children over the past 20+ years,” her daughter said. “In total she has made 49 afghans this year, 45 of which she just donated to Jersey Shore Medical Hospital’s Pediatric and Pediatric ICU wards.”
This is Banta’s 5th year donating to the hospital.
“She has probably donated over 1,000 blankets to those in need at this point in her lifetime and she’s not stopping anytime soon!” her daughter added.
What a wonderful lady.
That is the kind of person that I want in my life. People that joyfully give to others consistently are always such a blessing to be around.
It has been said that it is more blessed to give than to receive, and it is also true that being a “giver” makes you a much better person than being a “taker”.
