    Great thread. Came across this heartwarming story recently, to add:

    Little Ellie & The Olympian: The Kindest Race Ever
    --by The Huffington Post, Original Story, Aug 10, 2012

    [IMG]

    He's a world record holding sprinter from South Africa. She's a spunky 5-year-old from
    Essex, England. In an inspiring series of images that have recently gone viral, the two
    strangers, united only by a stubborn refusal to let double amputations stop them, race
    each other in a friendly bionic foot race.

    I hope this will be allowed due to the religious part. If it isn't I understand. This is two kids from Arizona who live not far from my brother-in-law. I have never met them, but I sure would like to. The part that gets me is Dayton's parents at the end.

    Let's not forget our own:


    Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley
    After the first game of the season, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo pulled off the road late on a Sunday night and helped out a stranded motorist. On Tuesday, he walked up to a movie theater and noticed that a homeless man was cashing in change. Romo bought the man a ticket to see "Role Model" and then invited him to sit with he and his buddy.

    I'll let Tim MacMahon of the Cowboys Blog tell the rest of the story:

    Romo, who confirmed the story but didn't want to elaborate, waved [the homeless man] Doc over to sit by him and his buddy. Doc sheepishly mentioned that he hadn't showered in a few days.
    "Don't worry about that," Romo said. "I'm used to locker rooms."
    And so the $67 million quarterback and a man who doesn't have $6.70 to his name sat next to each other and shared laughs for 90 minutes or so.
    Pretty cool story. Earlier in the day, Romo stopped by my neighborhood with actor Will Smith to participate in a pep rally for the Lake Highlands volleyball and football teams.

    Really cool! Awe inspiring, even. :)

    Guess this qualifies as a great life-investment example of an answer to the woe-is-me question so many have rhetorically posited over time...
    Q: "Well, what can just one person do about it?"
    A: "Maybe see and apply the above story... plant your own 'seeds' for positive change, if nothing else."

    And you SHOULD be sorry! My delicate poster sensibilities were hurt by your oversight. Clean up your act, es... or do you want to be put on the "Dez Bryant Shape-Up-or-Ship-Out Program" to give you the direction you need?

    I will adhere to everything Dez agreed to except avoiding scrip clubs. Not for my own pleasure, of course, but so that I can teach my son about the birds and the bees. :)

    I knew you were a great dad! Why, the things you do for the good of your beautiful children... your son, in this case.

    Downright self-sacrificial. :D
