This is just a fantastic story and emblematic of the America that we all know and love…and want to keep:

Ok, don’t laugh at me but I pulled a minor John Boehner. I know some Christians that go around and help people in this same way all the time. It’s very heart warming and it’s awesome.
A thousand thanks, Scoop. That’s a wonderful way to end my day. Going to sleep now, and I’ll be smiling while I’m sleeping because of this video.
Good night, all !
Now that’s what Americans are all about. You want to know why America is exceptional? That’s why!
They give up what is important to them for the sake of others.
They don’t do so because they have to. They do so because they want to, which makes all the difference in the world.
O/T: CNN does http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/09/tech/innovation/danny-lewin-9-11-akamai/index.html?hpt=hp_t1.
This is why Obama hates America…no matter how hard he tries he can’t break our hearts nor our spirits! We are Americans forevermore!
K-Bob It makes sense he would be the first one to be killed. Not just because he was sitting in 9B but because of his background of military training and knowledge of Arabic he more than likely tried to intervene and got stabbed to death in the process.
Pukes like obama could no more understand the givers or the recipients of this story than they can understand why anyone would join the US military. We are an alien breed to them. If you’re not a “community organizer” or want to “fundamentally change America” because you hate it so, you have no place in their world. And I would have it no other way… they have no place in our world. Just venting a little… I see stories like this and recognize true heroism…. then I think of our elitist “leaders” and wonder how we went wrong.
I deeply enjoyed reading this about the first person killed in the 9-11 attacks, Danny Lewin.
It in its own way is as good a story as the wonderful story which is featured here in this post about the people who came to help the lady get her stolen car fixed and bring her a new wheel chair.
I think on 9-11-2013, two days ago Danny Lewin may have been smiling as the 2 million bikers to D. C. in memorial of his sacrifice and that of so many more that day and every day since.
Both of these stories were genuinely great stories. What’s going on at CNN?!
John Craven – New Orleans
Ditto! Bill in Tennessee. Ditto!
John Craven – New Orleans
subie201 Amen subie!
kong1967 ;-) Just smilin’
Didn’t Obama do this once?
Let me think now—
Oops! – My error – He ATE a ladies dog!
Thank you for posting this story. There are stories like this everyday that we would never hear about if it were not for you posting them. These are the stories that bring people together and make us want to do better. We all have it in us if we just tweak our thinking a bit and realize that we were put here to serve God by serving our fellow man. May God bless everyone who has put a hand up to help and ask nothing in return.
This needs no government regulation. It’s simply what we do because its right to care for our neighbors.
THIS is what America used to be all about. United we stand, divided we fall. Obama and evil know that… that’s why they are working overtime to split us up.
Thank God there are still some decent people left in this country.
Man…THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!! Screw what Putin says…he’s just jealous that America REALLY IS the GREATEST country to ever grace the face of this Earth!!! And THESE PEOPLE are PROOF of that!!!
Yeah ! That’s the American spirit ! Americans helping Americans just because we can .
The Sentinel amen amen
Bill in Tennessee Oh Bill wish I had said what you did………….excellent post sir
This is the America that we all know and love! And it is what makes us great!
Real Americans. God bless them.
Aww! God Bless those folks!!! I love this! Thank you Scoop!
Theresaaa Not because the govt says we have to but because WE want to do it. It’s called charity and responsibility and we’re taught these lessons by reading and embracing the testament of the Living God and His last sacrifice, His son, Yeshua, Blessed is His name.
The Obama’s know all about this kind of giving don’t they?
Bill in Tennessee We were all too busy living our lives and could never imagine the extent of depravity and greed in politicians. Nor could we imagine the extent of their need to control us.
“What’s going on at CNN?!”
I think Anderson Cooper is probably a really decent guy. That affects the whole staff. They lean left, but Anderson has a great deal of respect for Glenn Beck. Go figure.
I suspect Anderson gets a fact of life expressed by K-Bob’s Codex, #3:3) Gays are far safer behind conservatives with guns than they are among the jihad-enabling, individual-liberty-denying, totalitarian Left.
These are precious folks helping this dear lady in need. Thank you for this lovely heartwarming act. Thanks for sharing Scoop.
Wow, a ’99 Chrysler product and it’s not a rust bucket already? That one’s worth saving. Seriously though, very nice of that guy to help out.
My faith in humanity is restored even I for a short time.
This is being, living in, an exceptional Nation = USA .. I often buy meals for unsuspecting people, feeling, better than the food eaten, funny, I feel selfish .. Try it you might like it. Give back all day 24/7 .. have exceptional day .. in exceptional America, we aren’t, it is. good day.
Nice to show my kid a story that good people still exist. Scoop, you should post one every day! Or are there enough good stories to go around? (Ouch)
And no govt to tell anyone they had to do it… Imagine that.
Gee, I wonder why the coasts continue to make fun of us in Flyover country, when deeds such as this are actually pretty normal. God bless America – the real America.
Although I could barely hear it I get the gist. Spread the love not hate. We should all live by the motto “there but for the grace of God go I” and quit the insulting, name calling and hate towards each other.
“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”
Amen to that!
Compassion will be known where compassion was shown.
And that’s what makes America exceptional – are you watching, Mr Putin?
This is what America used to be.How far we have fallen. This story is taking place 25 miles north of my location in Ohio.
This is what America has always been about and still is. Just because we don’t see all the stories like this that play out daily across our great nation doesn’t mean they aren’t happening. If there was a website devoted only to these kind of stories it would be filled to capacity on a daily basis. In fact I doubt a website could hold all the stories of American kindness to each other and to others in the world.
Thank you for this post. May G-d bless this precious man ( Dennis) for his wonderful act of kindness and love.
And may G-d bless the kind woman that helped her get the wheel chair. Wonderful.
Good on Linda.
Blubbering once again at the computer, love this story!
Charity from the heart.
Not by force.
This is who we really are.
What a nice man doing what God has commanded all of us to do.
This is what Christ had in mind in the first place. ‘Charity’, not ‘Subsidy’.
We are not Obummer’s America. We’re the America of Channel 8 News, Extreme home makeover, Operation Smile, Dennis Blakesly, and so many more charities and charitable people. This is why I’m convinced that no matter the darkness and poop we have to crawl through because of our ‘leaders’ and the mistakes we’ve made in the past, we’re going to come out great in the end.
People like these are the salt of the earth. They spice up bland lives and bring a little bit of heaven to this world. If only there were more like them.
