What These Firefighters Did for 97-Year-Old Military Widow is Pure Awesomeness

Published

One of the most beautiful things about America is the spirit of love for one’s neighbor that permeates much of our culture. You might not notice all of the small acts of kindness that happen on a daily basis, mostly because these days the interactions we see between people largely happen online.

However, human decency is still alive and well, the reports of its demise being greatly exaggerated. In fact, a story that’s making it’s way around the Internet right now is proving that point to be a true.

A 97-year-old military widow was unable to raise a new flag at her residence and requested the help of local firefighters. They happily obliged.

The woman said she “wanted to raise a new United States flag but her rope needed to be repaired,” the Portland Fire Department explained in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

Firefighters carried out repairs and raised Old Glory. As they got to work, the helpers learned about the woman’s family history.

“While assisting her, the crew learned that her late Husband was a Pearl Harbor Veteran,” the department explained. “It was a pleasure to assist you with this necessary repair and to learn about your husband.”

Fire officials included a few photos in the post, including one of the red, white and blue flag waving in the wind.

The post has received more than 3,000 reactions and 300 comments as of Wednesday night.

This is so awesome.

Isn’t it great to know that good people still exist in our nation? It so easy these days to feel discouraged by the division in our country, thanks in large part to the extreme hostility of the left — and yes, some on the right too.

However, all is not lost. Not by a long shot. In fact, there’s a whole lot of good in this burned out berg that we need to keep fighting for each and every day.

A Perfect Example How the Media Lies to Push a Left-Wing Agenda

Venture capitalist and novelist J.D. Vance has the perfect example of how the biased media lies to push their left-wing agenda. Vance, who wrote the popular book Hillbilly Elegy, reports that he decided to quit the board of directors of Kentucky green energy company AppHarvest. But after he resigned, the left-wing media began pushing the fake news tale that he left the board under a cloud because Bloomberg caused the company to force him out. This claim that he was forced out is a provable lie. But despite the truth, outlets including the Cincinnati Enquirer, The Lexington Herald Leader, The New York Post, Bloomberg and the Associated Press and more all pushed the lie as if it was incontrovertible fact. Bloomberg claimed that Vance was forced out because he posted “controversial tweets” which had prompted the Bloomberg to ask AppHarvest to account for Vance’s tweets. But this is false. Vance did post tweets that leftists would find “controversial,” but they were posted after he left the company. Vance finally went to Twitter to describe how the left-wing media lied about the situation. “Alright, here’s a story about how the media often shapes narratives instead of reporting the truth, and how a small untruth can morph into a lie that’s repeated again and again throughout the media bubble,” Vance wrote Friday on Twitter.
