Construction Workers Help People Escape Building

Construction workers in New Mexico were putting on a roof when they heard a man scream in the building next door. They ran over to the burning building and saw a father holding his baby out the window. There was no doubt in Mason Fierro’s mind that he could catch the baby. With encouragement, the father dropped the baby into Mason’s arms and then dropped his other child to Mason. The rest of the construction crew brought ladders over and went banging on doors to get people out. The apartment building was a total loss, but all people are in stable condition. Here’s the story from CNN.

In another CNN story, this young uncle rescues his niece from a house fire.

Catching Wildlife Traffickers

109 countries worked together in a successful sting operation to save animals.

Over the month of June, officials seized 23 live primates, 30 big cats, more than a ton of pangolin scales, 74 truckloads of timber, more than 2,600 plants, and nearly 10,000 marine species.  _ Good News Network

Silent Ovation for Sound Sensitive Student

At the Carmel High School Graduation, students were asked to let one of their classmates, Jack Higgins, receive his diploma first and that they not cheer. Jack is sound sensitive like my grandson, so I appreciate their respect and patience. I don’t recall the students being asked to stand in the instructions. They did that on their own.

    • Thank you, Miriam. That means a lot and encourages me to keep going, even if some weeks I might have just one story. Somehow, I manage to have more than one, though. We all need more good news, and I’m glad you appreciate that! ❤
