The Dec. 23 front-page news story “ ‘Shirley’s Fan Club’ surprises her with car” about Shirley Ratliff made me sob! How lovely it is to see such a heartwarming story on the front page, where surely stories like these deserve to be.
When we are inundated with horrible situations here and around the world, it’s refreshing to acknowledge that there are wonderful people in the world also. Please, please keep sharing these types of stories with us. We all really need them. The selfless actions by others are way more deserving of print space than the negative. Yes, we need to be informed, but the beauty of humanity should be included and celebrated.
Thank you for letting us know about Shirley Ratliff and the generosity of her friends. This is what life is all about!
