I learned today that a resident, a woman, at the long term hotel where I'm staying just paid $200 towards my bill. She evidently saw me in my wheelchair and was moved to this act of generosity. Now, I've had people pay my bill at restaurants or in grocery stores before, but this was extraordinary. The manager told me the woman is some sort of philanthropist and was moved by my situation. I would've liked to meet and thank her, but I think she's checked out.

You watch the news and see so many bad acts being performed by people against their fellow man, but certainly most folks are basically good towards others.

I don't wish this on anybody, but if you ever find yourself in a handicapped situation, you'll no doubt have similar experiences that will restore your faith in humanity. [emoticon]

Fortunately there are more good people than bad out there. They just don't get the recognition. Thank you for sharing!

There are WAY more good people than bad-it's just the bad get the notoriety. I am so happy one of them could help you out!

Very few good deeds make the news,but a fight at a super store is headlines. Still think there are lots of good people out there,actually seeing more on local news lately. News has a few minutes everyday of the good news.

If it’s uncommon, it’s news; if it’s rare, it’s front page news; it it’s never happened before, it’s the inch tall screaming headline for the next week. Common, however, never gets mentioned.

yes. I agree that more good deeds are showing up on some news channels, especially those accounts highlighting police who go out of their way to help others in dangerous situations. I'm a strong advocate of those fine folks in law enforcement, regardless of the one or two bad apples that sometimes appear.[emoticon]
