With all the screeching about what a rotten, unjust, racist country this nation is it's good to hear a story that shows the basic common decency of so many Americans.
Eight year old Laney Brown lay dying of a rare form on Leukemia at her parent's home in West Reading Pennsylvania. One of her final wishes was to hear Christmas Carols sung outside her window. 10,000 well wishers crowded the street outside her home last Saturday to grant that wish.
Days later, early on Christmas morning, Laney died. The New York Daily News has the story.
No government program could have saved Laney. She had great health care, perhaps better than she would have received under ObamaCare. But what Laney wanted, and what she got, was proof that her life, however short, mattered. Her neighbors gave her that assurance.
There may not be a Santa Claus but the Spirit of Christmas is alive and well in the hearts of those who show goodwill to their fellow man during the holiday season and throughout the year. No government program can mandate humanity. But thank God it's still alive.
Even when all hope is lost, there is still love!
