We are typically exposed to bad news because that is what the news outlets tend to report. When you really stop to look at the world around us, however, you recognize that there are many loving and compassionate acts that are taking place as well. If you look for them, they will appear right before your eyes and sometimes, they may show up in the most unexpected places. When you see them, be sure to share them because we could all use a little good news in our lives.
A Reddit user saw something in his neighborhood that was so unusual, he just had to share it with the Internet. It was a young boy who was walking with a blind deer right in the middle of his suburban Chicago neighborhood. The deer was looking for food and the man told his story.
This 10-year-old boy had become familiar with the deer and had been walking him on his way to school every day. He wasn’t trying to keep the deer as a pet, he just took a special interest in her welfare because she needed the extra help. You see, she was blind and she didn’t stand much of a chance without some interaction.
The Reddit user said this was the sweetest example of helping and caring he had ever seen. He and his wife were so touched by what they saw that they want to talk to his mother to see if he can be rewarded for his kindness. They also plan on taking this picture and framing it along with offering to take him to a wildlife preserve in the local area.
There were other people who also loved the compassion this young lad showed:
Since this picture was taken, a wildlife rescue group got involved and took the deer to a sanctuary where she could live safely.
Life is too short to focus on bad news. When we hear good news like this about people pulling together and looking out for the welfare of others, it is something that needs to be told.
