This is Kyle, and he’s about to restore your faith in humanity

Just a reminder of how important showing kindness can be.

You won’t believe this story.

This is Kyle, and he’s about to restore your faith in humanity.

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.

    • Wow, Bruce. That’s definitely a powerful video, and it IS so true. I once crossed paths with a former felon, and long story short, I showed him some kindness, and even let him borrow quite a bit of money.

      If you had seen the tears in that man’s eyes and heard him say that in his 50 years, he had never had anyone trust him or treat him like that, then you would spend the rest of your life helping others. That experience helped change me and for a long time, I was pretty sure I’d never get the money back. But somehow, he dug deep and I know he fought some demons involving drugs and alcohol, but he still paid it back.

      Now, I try to be friendly with him every chance I can, without allowing some of the negative influences he still struggles with to spread into my life. It’s always a balancing act, helping others who are drowning, without getting pulled down yourself. Anyway, my hastily typed comment probably isn’t making much sense, but it’s late and I don’t have time to polish it. At any rate, really appreciate the comment and the link to that video. It was really well done and moving.

    • So true, Letizia. And thank you for the comment! You have a wonderful week, as well. We haven’t chatted in a while, and I’m super buried right now, but I’ll try to catch you with you soon! (After all, right now, you are by far my favorite gf in New York. Of course, you’re my only gf in NY, but still!)
