In the darkest moments, these people responded in the most beautiful ways

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, my friends.

I’ve been writing like a maniac on Mexican Heat, and finally finished it last night.

Anyway, I read this a week or so ago and saved it to share with you guys, but I’m just now getting around to doing so. Regardless, I hope it touches you the way it touched me.

In the darkest of moments, these people responded in the most beautiful ways.

Be kind to someone tomorrow (or tonight, if you can), and keep loving and believing in yourself.

Keep the faith,

Stan R. Mitchell

Oak Ridge, Tenn.

P.S. If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security. “Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after surviving three years of war only to find himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron. And “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.

  1. There is some hope for us after all.

  2. Brings tears to your eyes. Thanks for sharing, Stan.

    • These stories really hit me, too, Tom… They were really beautiful, and they inspired me to do more to help my fellow neighbor.

      And given how cynical we can all grow in today’s society, it’s important that I refresh the ole’ brain to remember that from time to time…

      Hope you’re doing well down there in Texas!

      • Just busy, book reviews and interviews. Plus, this week we record two Internet podcasts, so things have been hectic. I just got a batch of books from publishers to read and review, so I’m going to be reading for a while it looks like. Hey, and a big book sale is coming up next moth that I’ve got to go to (G).

        • Nice. Glad to see you’re staying so busy! And if you’re going to a big book sale, that just a step or two below heaven, right? (Danah and I literally enjoy going to bookstores or used bookstores more than just about anything else… We practically make dates of it… And if we had more money, we’d live in them…)

  3. One might ask who as the most grace, those who show up to help a
    a dying person, or those who help others as they lie dying.
