I saw this incredible news story and couldn't resist passing it along here. A Philadelphia 8-year-old is being called a hero after he helped his pregnant mother, who lost the ability to see while driving, steer her car through a mile of traffic intersections until he could find a safe place for her to stop. I imagine she felt a lot like the blind man in the picture. Click here to see video.

Our kids are so amazing, aren't they? I have my own story which is not quite as dramatic but (I feel) worth sharing. When we lived in Japan before we had moved on base, my daughter was in the first grade. (The picture to the right is her passport picture! She was thrilled!) Anyway, we went out sightseeing in our car and promptly got lost. Problem -- the signs were all in Kanji and Katakana. Problem solved -- my daughter steered us home since she recognized enough of the surroundings as those on her bus route from our house to school and was able to get us back home safe and sound!

Otherwise, we might have had to pull out our business card note which the Navy gave us upon arrival in Japan which stated in Kanji and Katakana that we were lost and to please give us directions to the Navy base.

Any other heroic children stories out there?

I don't know if you've gone to the goodnews site yet, but it's like a whole movement like the Pay It Forward Movement. Looks like it will be fun; I've GOT to sign up!

Thanks, Debra! I love reading/hearing about the good things people do. There's not enough of it. I've been taking a break from the news lately, because I'm so sick of the negativity.

Thanks for sharing your good news.

I love TV shows like Extreme Makeover Home Edition. I cry from beginning to end. I also watch the Pet Hero (not sure of the name) show, love to cry at that one, too.

Their link didn't seem to come out in the post above. So, here it is again: http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/

Your wish is my command! No, seriously, it was there already! I just forgot to put their logo on the post above. But there actually IS a GOOD NEWS network international I think you might find interesting and from which this original story came. Check it out!

Wow, that is a very nice story. I think we need to have a GOOD NEWS channel on TV. I would much rather hear about these kinds of news stories than the other gloom and doom. Thanks for sharing.
