This is amazing. It happened in 2010 but it’s still relevant. And of course the NY Times makes it hard to embed on WordPress. So here it is.
And then there is the story where people are paying off the holiday lay-a-ways at stores like K-Mart and Wal-Mart.
You know, sometimes you can be as grouchy as hell about the holiday, or about the Christians out there trying to make us second class citizens. But to read about and watch the acts of people trying to make it a better holiday kind of restores ones faith in humanity to do the right thing.
There are a lot of “Christians” out there who could learn a serious lesson from the people who’ve made this a happy holiday for countless families.
Even I, as atheist as I am have helped people out. We all have to do it. And sometimes we are the recipients of the generosity of our fellow man.
And meanwhile I’m off on a national security errand.
