This makes my day.

Michael Vanveckhoven, a reader of this blog sent me a photo of children in Meridian, Mississippi, collecting warm hats and gloves for children in Rockville Center on Long Island in New York.

Michael read here a note from high school principal Carol Burris about students whose homes were severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

The south shore of Long Island took the full force of the hurricane and experienced a huge surge and flooding.

Carol said many of the children were living without power and were cold and damp. She said they needed hats and gloves.

And the children in Meridian collected hats and gloves to send to Carol’s school to distribute.

Excuse me, I am crying.

I don’t have a category marked “the goodness of the human spirit.”
