We all know Clark Kent, Bruce Wayne, and Tony Stark are fun myths for our entertainment, but once in a while a story comes along that makes you want to believe in superheroes.

She might not wear a cape or have her own theme song (yet), but Irena Ivic is a real-life superhero.

Originally from Serbia, Ivic came to the United States twelve years ago. She began her career as a city bus driver with the Milwaukee County Transit System just five years ago.

Ivic never could have predicted that her career choice would eventually land her in the right place at just the right time to do something absolutely incredible.

As Ivic proceeded with her morning route near the corner of 4th and Mitchell in Milwaukee, she couldn’t believe what she was seeing up ahead of her bus: a tiny baby was running around on an overpass wearing nothing but a onesie and a diaper in Milwaukee’s frigid winter weather.

“I couldn’t believe that somebody left the child on the street,” Ivic later recalled to Fox 6.

In a hair-raising scene that was captured on video, Ivic immediately parked her bus and ran out to the street to rescue the baby just before the little one steps into the street.

Ivic brought the shivering little girl back onto the bus where a kindhearted passenger lent their coat to warm her up.

“Oh my God, I was so upset,” said Ivic. “Baby was so scared and cried.” However, when police arrived on the scene, they found the baby girl fast asleep, snuggling in Ivic’s arms.

Authorities were able to locate the girl’s father and reunite them. She was unharmed, and no charges were filed in this case.

Milwaukee police told FOX6 News no charges were filed in this case.

Not long after her stunning act of heroism, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and MCTS officials honored Ivic with a small ceremony. Her actions, Abele said, represented “humanity at its best.”

“She did a lot more than her job. She did the right thing,” he added. “I don’t take that kind of compassion for granted.”

In this cold world, one can only imagine what could have happened if Ivic had not cared or simply hadn’t acted fast enough. People like her are everyday heroes.

With nearly endless coverage of all the chaos and violence bombarding us on network news, not to mention the whole fight over mask mandates, coronavirus safety measures, and everything else happening in the world, it can be easy to think there’s no goodness left in the world. Of course, as long as Jesus Christ is on the throne we know that’s not true, but sometimes, you just need to be reminded that He’s still at work in the world around us. And He is, folks. He truly is. That’s why we need to hear stories like the following. Apparently, a single mom who lost her job during the lockdown over coronavirus, has donated lottery winnings to a police officer that was shot in the line of duty. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Shetara Sims lost her job amid the coronavirus pandemic and had $7 to her name, local outlet WITN reported Tuesday. She found a $1 bill in a grocery store parking lot, bought a scratch-off ticket, and won $100. Her daughter, Rakiya Edmonson, suggested they donate the money to an officer who was shot on the job on July 2 and remains in the intensive care unit. “She won $100, and I said we should donate it to the police officer that got shot for his family to go eat and see him,” Edmonson said. Sims agreed with her daughter and said she was motivated to donate because of the empathy officers had shown her following her sister’s 2012 murder. Sims went on to discuss how detectives were really there for her and her family during that difficult season of life. “The detectives were really there for us. They were there for us more than anyone I can imagine. They did things they didn’t have to…

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.
