Good News: Heroic Surfers and a No-Nonsense Great-Grandma

Here are a few more good news stories making the rounds . . .

1.  Hopefully this trend continues:  Remember when the owner of the clothing brand Patagonia announced he was donating his company to a non-profit last month?  The owner of Hobby Lobby announced he’s doing it too.

2.  A 59-year-old in Virginia named Todd Rowan was walking on the beach with his wife this month when he had a heart attack.  But two surfers did CPR and saved him.  One was a guy named Tyler Volpe who works as a physician’s assistant.  Todd got to meet up with him the other day to thank him in person.

3.  A great-grandmother stopped a purse thief in Oakland, California this month.  They were trying to steal her neighbor’s bag, but she ran in, threw her cane at their car, and scared them off.

4.  A woman in North Carolina posted a video of her dad, who has early onset dementia.  And it’s heartbreaking, but inspiring too.  He can’t remember he’s her father and says it freaks him out when she calls him “Dad”.  But he can feel she’s someone important to him and doesn’t want to hurt her feelings.

She says it’s okay, and offers to call him Scott now.  Then it ends with him telling her, “I love you.”

(Here’s the video and a GoFundMe if you want to help.)
