Good News: Puppies, Marathoners, and Class Presidents

Here are a few more Good News stories making the rounds . . .

1.  A high school graduation in Lakeville, Massachusetts is in the news because of the speech the class president gave.

He ended by telling everyone to check under their seat, because he’d written personalized notes for all 181 classmates, thanking them for being part of what they’ll eventually call “the good old days.”

He told his local radio station it took him 10 hours to write them all, and he showed up an hour early to tape them to the bottom of each chair.

(Here’s a news report with footage.)

2.  A Navy vet and retired cop named John Barnett is raising money for the charity Paws of War by running marathons in all 50 states.  He ran his first one in Billings, Montana last month.  His next one is in Anchorage, Alaska next week.

3.  A partially paralyzed puppy is walking again after vets in England used 3D-printed screws to repair its spine.  The surgery was three months ago, and he’s up running around again.
