    If Rudy had been a Cornhusker, he would have tackled him.

    This one is touching in so many ways. It acutally replaced the Clooney hit as the top play of the week.

    This is a minor one but the other day I was in a long line at Walmart and waiting patiently to pay for some items when this mother of three was at the cashier paying for some much needed items. She didn't look like she had much and her kids looked like they had not bathed and a couple of days. The mother was getting some dirty looks from other people as she tried to pay for some of the items. She had to put several things back as she did not have enough with the food stamps she had. This was not to the liken of the cashier or other people who were getting annoyed with this lady. I heard several people make some really mean comments about her that I am sure she heard. Comments like " How could anyone live like that, her children have no hope, she should be ashamed of herself." The cashier put the her things that she could not afford in a bag and the women and her three children walked out the door. Her head was held low and she never made eye contact with anyone. People made comments as she walked out the door like "its about time and boy did they smell." I paid for my items and when the cashier asked me if their was anything else, I told her yes. I told her I would pay for the items in the bag that the woman could not. You should have seen the look on the cashier dface and the people around me. They were totally stunned. I went outside and found the woman with her three small children pushing the shopping cart they had. I said to her "Mam, you forgot this at check out line." She was surprised and thanked me. She told me she did not have any money to give me. I told her no bother but the way you can repay me is by keeping your head up and don't listen to what people say. I then just walked away. If people would just be kind to others and look in helping one another instead of pitying them, this world will be a better place for ourselves and our children.

    Your a good man Bigdog. I have witnessed this sort of stuff too but never reached out like what you did. I have offered to pay the difference a few times for those in need but what you did was above and beyond.

    I have no respect for those who cast judge on other peoples misfortunes, especially when they know nothing about the situation. Some are trying their best but just can't catch that break and a little assistance from us goes a long ways.

    Thank you. I wasn't trying to get any praise but I just thought it was the right thing to do. My wife rescues foster dogs and then tries to get them to a good home. We try to teach our children to help those peopple and animals who are less fortunate than we are.

    This is a great thread. I love reading this kind of stuff. Alot of people, media focus on the negative that goes on in the world. I like to see the positive in people. Hopefully, we can keep this going and ethos, thank you for starting it.

    California baseball team springs into action to lift car, save trapped girl’s life

    By Cameron Smith | Prep Rally – 8 hours

    As first reported by Sacramento TV news outlets KXTV and NBC affiliate KCRA, members of the Valley baseball team sprung into action after seeing a mother accidentally run over her own daughter in the parking lot. The mother was dropping off her daughter for an after school program when she accidentally hit the car in front of her, panicked and threw the auto into reverse. The rapid shift pinned her daughter under the car and rendered her immobile, all while putting her health in peril should the mother try and drive forward again.

    As soon as the players heard screams for help they raced over, with a total of 16 varsity and junior varsity members of the Valley squad combining to lift the car up while Valley coach James Millholland pulled the trapped girl out from under the car.

    "We all just ran out there as a team," varsity coach James Millholland told KCRA. "No one was saying much, and then the guys got around the car and just lifted it up. There was very little talking."

    Both Sacramento-based television networks cited reports from the hospital saying that the girl had not suffered any significant injuries, with the players’ quick thinking saving the day, and her long term health.
