I’m sure I won’t be the only one posting this, but it’s what I found. I thought it exemplified the #WATWB criteria of a good news story. People responding to a person in distress, including one man who himself injured his back in an effort to catch the girl dangling from a gondola at a Six Flags in upstate New York. No one, it seems, cared about the race or religion of the girl. No one, it seems, cared about her politics. Some reports say the 14-year old herself contributed to her predicament. That too is beside the point of the good Samaritans, isn’t it?

  1. John, it matters not how many post this story, as it is worth spreading. As you said so eloquently “No one, it seems, cared about the race or religion of the girl. No one, it seems, cared about her politics.” They just did it. Thanks for sharing it No one, it seems, cared about the race or religion of the girl. No one, it seems, cared about her politics.” Simon’s Still Stanza #WATWB

    1. Yes, it’s very encouraging to see people respond like this. I tried reciprocating with a comment on your Life in Ecuador blog but I never seem to be able to connect using any of the options available with sites that use that selection option–neither WordPress nor a Google account seems to work. So please excuse my lack of interaction.

We really want to hear from you. Tell us what you think.
