I love sappy stories about good neighbors.
This story about a little three-year-old boy and an almost 90-year-old man touched my heart and I wanted to share it with you.
It also got me thinking about how there are probably untold stories here in Racine County about neighbors helping neighbors. So often Heather and I are writing about crime that we sometimes feel like we’re missing the bigger picture.
And there have been others — of neighbors saving neighbors, neighbors stepping up to bring a little joy into their neighbors lives and neighbors filling in the gap when their neighbors are sick.
The other day, a family member of mine told me she ignores those stories now. They are too much for her to take and she didn’t have room for taking in all of that pain. So this got me thinking that we should take the time to talk about how good we have it and pause to think about some of the little things that make our lives a little easier.
So I thought I’d throw this out there — tell us your good neighbor stories in the comments section of this story.
Love what we do?
