COVID 19 Breakthrough: Affordable Steroid Reduces Risk of Death by One-Third in for Patients on Ventilators

Earlier this month, Oxford University researchers announced that a low-dose, affordable steroid can reduce the risk of death by one-third for COVID-19 patients on ventilators…” Here’s more from the Good News Network.

“Literacy in the Hood”

Chrishawndra Matthews, a single mom in Cleveland, Ohio, has been giving away thousands of free books to kids over the summer. You can read more about her and her non-profit in this story from Good Morning America.

 

A Park Ranger with Strong Shoulders

Kris Salapek, a park ranger in the Delaware Water Gap Recreation Area in the eastern US, carried large dehydrated dog down a rugged mountain trail. Here’s the story from the Good News Network. 

 Protester Carries Injured Counter Protester to Safety

The anti racism event in London was supposed to be a peaceful demonstration for police reform, but fights broke out after counter-protestors gathered in opposition. Patrick Hutchinson told CNN he “saw the man lying on some stairs in the fetal position surrounded by protesters.” Patrick picked the man up and, with protection from friends, carried him over his shoulder to the police for safety.

 

Mr. Hutchinson’s compassionate carry reminds me of the old song, “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother,” which had a significant impact on me in 1969 and beyond.

  1. A marvellous “He Ain’t Heavy” combination.

  2. I love the giving away books! Books, and children, 2 of my favourite things….

  3. Thank you for sharing this. We all need a portion of our news to be of the ‘good’ kind. Such heartwarming stories.

  4. I love your song choice. It’s very appropriate for our times of uncertain futures.

  5. We need a lot more stories like the BLM story in this world right now.

  6. The Hollies one of my favourite groups way back when JoAnna… A lovely combination of post topics .. Love the free books give away too 🙂 ❤ .. I and other neighbours have been sharing our books in lockdown.. and its been wonderful being able to share with things we have not been able to shop for..
    A neighbour has some ant powder as we had a nest of ants swarming running indoors… I was able to give lettuce and beetroot to neighbours, and some grass seed to another… Here at least its brought our community closer together I feel.. 🙂
    Sending love and hugs over the ocean JoAnna.. ❤ take care 🙂

    • I love the sharing with neighbors. Imagine a world without money where everyone has what they need! Love and hugs coming your way <3.

      • That may come sooner than anyone thinks.. So be prepared in your store cupboards JoAnna, I do not wish to spread fear… But I am a realist also… And this is not the end of things, in this battle we are witnessing…. The cycles of the Earth are in motion and many things will hit us all at once…. So good neighbours will be gold dust.. 🙂 As communities draw together… ❤
        Much love your way also ❤
