There must be SOME good news around.

Post by Syl on Tue Jun 06, 2017 12:54 pm

First topic message reminder :

I have put this in weird news because it would seem weird to actually read anything good or uplifting lately.

Surely someone somewhere can spread a little happiness by finding some good news that's happening in an area near you??

I fear so.

As Scrat says (so it must be true, mustn't it? Er, mustn't it?) I married into wealth and inherited a huge number of run-down properties, for which I charged poor underprivileged dole claimants extortionate rents and then misappropriated the money paid to me by the DHSS and invested it in tax-evading companies based in well known tax havens such as, er, Biggleswade.

So there.

Another lovely feel good story in todays paper.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/homeless-man-lends-diner-shoes-10662031



"A homeless man came to the rescue when a diner was turned away from a restaurant because he was wearing sandals.
Akbar Badshah was supposed to be celebrating his wife’s birthday – and also breaking his fast on the first day of Ramadan .
Akbar and wife Rozmin had booked a table at Brazilian diner Fazenda in Manchester, travelling all the way from their home in Bradford, for their special meal.
But Akbar, a 36-year-old optician, says he was wrong-footed when staff explained he could not get in with his black plastic open-toed shoes .
Thankfully help was at hand in the shape of homeless man John, who was sitting with his labrador nearby.
When Akbar enquired if he could borrow his shoes, John handed them over without hesitation – and even refused to take any money in return for the gesture.

Akbar said: “We left the restaurant and I got chatting to this homeless fellow John on Deansgate.
“I said, ‘John what size are you?’ and he said ‘14’. I’m a size nine so it’s a good job it wasn’t the other way round!
“He said, ‘you won’t believe this, but I’ve got a brand new pair of shoes from an outreach project’, and he said I could borrow them, so we swapped shoes.”

After finishing the couple went back to say thanks, and return the shoes.
Akbar tried to offer John £10 as a way of saying thank you, but he refused.

It took several attempts to hand over the money Akbar said: “He wouldn’t take it.
“I said, ‘Please, please I want to give it to you’.”
It seems karma was on the homeless man’s side, as right at that moment a man in his fifties walked past and, after hearing their conversation, stroked John’s labrador and handed him another £50 note.
Akbar added: “John couldn’t believe it. It was unbelievable karma. He kept saying he didn’t want anything in return.

I gave John a hug and we took some photos together. We just felt touched by what he had done.”
I love you I love you I love you

It really does.

There should be no homeless people in this day and age, Manchester city centre unfortunately seems to have more than ever. Sad
This is the third homeless person in the news lately, two tended the really badly injured after the Manchester bomb, one cradled a woman in his arms as she died, now this one does something most well heeled people wouldn't do, offers his shoes to help someone out.

These are the people others stride past without giving them a second thought.

I agree, no one should be homeless, why are there so many.

I do think some arn't really homeless but begging is their job so to speak, which is bad imo. Real homeless get tarred with the same brush.

I don't really believe all the tales about people who park their fancy cars round the corner and pitch up to beg....its probably a myth started by tight gets who look down on anyone who is not middle class.
No doubt there is the odd scammer, but they crop up everywhere.

I'm going to look for good news stories and post them here every time I see one that lifts the spirits (we all need a bit of that just now)
Hope others will do the same. x

A very good idea Syl. You can be in charge of keeping it tidy too.
